Mammal Tracks and Sign

Red Squirrel

 

TRACKS

Another Red Squirrel exploring around in the winter.

 

 

EATING & FOOD

 
Red Squirrels frequently eat at the same spot over and over.

Here one has demolished a cone while sitting on a stump.

 

 
When the pile of demolished and eaten cones and other debris accumulates, it is referred to as a midden.
 
Here's a much larger midden. This one is about 15" deep.

It also includes uneaten cones.

 
This midden has quite a stash of uneaten cones.
