I like watching them chase & yell at the grey squirrels ... curious that it is the other way around across the Atlantic?

I LOVE these little guys! Yes, they are feisty! The Michigan woods I grew up in had them. They'd pester the Fox Squirrels, which were at least 2x their size! They'd also follow our neighbor around in early spring as he tapped the Sugar Maple trees to make syrup. As soon as he left, the squirrels would be down at the spile (the "spigot") drinking the sap as it dripped out.
