This highly territorial female American Red Squirrel considers our yard her home. Her antics amuse us daily as she frequents our bird feeders and the large spruce tree beside the deck. When I took this picture earlier this month, she was ready to threaten any grey squirrel who dared to approach.
Tamarack trees are not widespread in our region but some are found around Columbia Lake and at Laurel Creek Conservation Area. This coniferous tree is unusual as it is deciduous and loses it needles in the fall. One Tamarack in this picture is already yellow and the other one is a little slower in changing colour.
