Red Squirrel

Northern American red squirrel or Eurasian red squirrel belongs to the genus Sciurus.  It is a species of tree squirrel and omnivorous.  Though it is called red squirrel, the color of the coat varies with time of year and location.  The color may vary from black to red.  I found the squirrels in Boston in February to be brownish red to grey.  Here are few pictures of these omnivorous rodents.
