A Day on Merganser Lake
It’s been about four years since a red squirrel visited my backyard (at least that I’ve seen.) In northern New England, this is the dominant squirrel species and I often hear their rattle-like call when I’m camping. In southern New England, the gray squirrel takes over. In most of the region, the two overlap. I have no shortage of gray squirrels (or chipmunks), but these guys rarely show up. It visited for a few minutes for two or three days and I haven’t seen it since. That was in April.
