This brown and gray squirrel has a light underside, nose and ring around the eye. It was eating something off of the ground. "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."
Outside resort. It wasn't afraid of people. "The red squirrels range extends throughout most of forested Alaska. Their northern extent is at the crest of the Brooks Range, and extends all the way through southeast Alaska."
