Not sure why $color:red is not accepted and throwing error instead

When declaring .box class, I did include the square mixin and passed necessary attributes. Bit puzzled why and what mistake i have made

@mixin square($size, $color: black){
    $height: $size;
    $width: $size;
    $border: 1px solid $color;

    @include square($size:50px,$color:red);

Remove the dollar sign $ from each of the properties in the mixin, they should look like this:

height: $size;
width: $size;
border: 1px solid $color;
