Red Squirrel

The red squirrel is easy to spot in the region’s woodlands, especially in mixed forests where there are hemlock or white pine. It can be distinguished from its black and grey cousins by its smaller size and reddish hue.
Its varied menu includes acorns, buds, flowers, fruit, mushrooms, insects and bird eggs, depending on what it can find. The red squirrel lives from three to four years, and females produce one or two litters of about five babies every year.
