Red squirrels can be easily identified from other North American tree squirrels by their smaller size, territorial behavior and reddish fur with a white venter (underbelly). Red squirrels are somewhat larger than chipmunks. The Douglas squirrel is morphologically similar to the American red squirrels, but has a rust-colored venter and is restricted to the southwestern coast of British Columbia and in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. These species' ranges do not overlap.

I loved the video. Everybody seemed to get plenty to snack on. What an adorable squirrel!
nice capture !!
Very cute and great video :)
I think I saw one today in my woods. I first thought it was a large Chipmunk and then saw it was a squirrel and it was making squeaking sounds like in your video and it had a white tummy and red tail. So adorable!
Very cute! I didn't know there was no squirrels in Australia! I thought there were always some species of squirrels everywhere on earth. We certainly learn something new every day on PN!
So cut ans fatty :) ! I love his little "quick" !
No Fyn, no Squirrels in Australia :(
Nice shot and video Fyn! Squirrels are only found in the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa, and not in Australia (apart from some introduced ones). Mind you , that's a pretty wide distribution for a family!
Thanks RiekoS, Sachin Zaveri, Ali Hemati Pour!!! Leanne, you've never heard a squirrel? You don't have any in Australia? Thanks!
