Territorial Red Squirrel

Today, I was walking along the Kip Trail at St. Lawrence University when I stopped to watch a woodpecker. It was a matter of seconds before I heard the chatter of an angry red squirrel. Being a highly territorial animal, he was not pleased that I had wandered into his home and continued chattering until I left.
