Red Squirrel

Another surprise on our property.

This is the one and only squirrel we’ve seen on our property. We were excited to see it since we’ve never seen a red squirrel in person before.

Latin name:
Tamiasciurus hudsonicus
Category:
Mammals
The red squirrel is about the same size as the Douglas squirrel and lives in coniferous forests and semi-open woods in northeast Washington. It is rusty-red on the upper part and white or grayish white on its underside.
The squirrel didn’t stay long but I was really happy that I happened to have my camera on me when it appeared.
We have more surprises to share soon from around our Country Bungalow.
Have a good day everyone…
