Artist's Description

TO VIEW LARGER ON A DARK BACKGROUND CLICK HERE

On a moss covered Fir Tree branch, a little Red Squirrel can be seen feeding on the seeds from a Fir cone.

Red Squirrels eat a wide-variety of foods including insects, seeds, bark, nuts, fruits, mushrooms and pine seeds or cones. It will at times even eat insects, young birds, mice and rabbits. A large part of its diet is made up of pine seeds.

In the fall, Red Squirrels will cut green pine cones from trees and store them in the ground. They also store nuts and seeds in piles or middens under logs, at the base of trees and underground. They don’t always find or eat all their stored seeds and nuts. Because of this, the red squirrel fills an important niche in spreading seeds in the forest!
