Red Squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus)

Hi there. Great pictures of Red Squirrels. I live in Toronto, Canada, and earlier this year, my wife, Jean, and I were in Ireland where we came upon the rarely seen Red Squirrel.

We feel very lucky to have seen two Red squirrels in Ireland, and have posted some of our pictures and videos for anyone interested at:
