I was quite elated yesterday morning when I saw this little Red Squirrel on a tree branch mistakenly thinking that this squirrel sighting was an early sign of spring.
However I was mistaken. Accordingly to Bernd Heinrich in his book 'Winter World , Heinrich states that Red Squirrels can be active during any month of the winter. It is in the periods of intense winter cold that they curl up in underground tunnels to protect themselves from the overpowering cold of the winter season Now that I think about it I have seen Red Squirrels over the winter while driving down country and woods roads, sometimes a lucky squirrel will dart across the road to reach safety on the other side. That is why I call it a lucky squirrel as it often maneuvers to safety. An early sign of spring or not I found this sighting yesterday very refreshing
