In Jamaica Plain we love our white squirrels! Recently another one of the rare rodents was seen at their favorite local haunt of Jamaica Pond.

Cari Brennen took this video of a white squirrel at Jamaica Pond in November 2019 and shared it with Jamaica Plain News.

Through the years there have been a concentration of white squirrels seen at Jamaica Pond and in Boston Common. The white squirrel is usually a morph of an Eastern Grey Squirrel, according to untamedscience.com. The way to tell if it's an albino squirrel is if it has red eyes.

The white squirrel is so beloved that it's the mascot of the Jamaica Plain Music Festival.
