American Red Squirrel on the Pippy Park Trail
The red squirrel is native to Labrador and the rest of North America but it was first introduced to Newfoundland in 1963 and it quickly spread across the province. Red
squirrels are often heard before they are seen as they undertake
skirmishes with their brothers. Who has not heard the familiar
angry-sounding chatter that occurs when an intruder is
spotted - one of the most common sounds in the forest!
