Sasha sends from Franklin Square.

I’d like to take the opportunity to announce the formation of the Friends of the White Whale Society (FOTWWS). It took a while navigating the nonprofit bureaucracy but we are now official. Basically we take a lot of photos of white squirrels and other urban wildlife exotica. Join us!!

OK, the White Whale(s) is no stranger to the pages of PoPville but there has been an explosion of sightings this summer. I am grateful to all who sent in samples. Without further ado, I give you, not including the ones we’ve already posted this summer, the White Whale, summer 2018: (more…)

Been getting tons of messages (thanks to all who’ve sent) from folks spotting White Whales – thanks to Judith for sending these – they’re multiplying:

“Both spotted near the mall at 3rd & Madison NW and along the outside of the NGA West Building. They are two separate squirrels!”

Thanks to Carlos for sending:

“I heard a crow cawing its head at 10th between N and O NW so i looked up and spotted this guy. It looked at me and then spread its wings, the pic does not do it justice for size but this sucker was huge!”
