I was watching some birds, waiting for them to land in the open when I saw this American Red Squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) staring at me. I love the expression on its face!
These squirrels are tiny, measuring about a foot long in total length including the tail. Their favorite foods are pine and spruce seeds, so they are often called "Pineys". They also enjoy the sap from maple trees. Who wants to join this squirrel for some syrup-covered pine nuts? 😆
