Defective Wildlife!

Well, it took long enough, but there he is. A genuinely defective squirrel, attacking my suet feeder. He is in all regards a perfect specimen of squirrelhood, except one--he's missing his right eye.

It looks like he's easily startled by things appearing out of his blind side--he and the cotton rat about gave each other heart failure in the hostas. The cotton rat has a peculiar, almost too-fast-for-mammals bounce, and the squirrel, of course, has a squirrel's leap, which is more about energy than grace. He's glommed on to the suet now.

"Blindy" doesn't scan very well as a name, so I'm open to suggestions.
