Gray Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis)

This squirrel has made himself at home at the campground, and is very active during the day 'squirreling' away nuts from the abundant spruce and fir trees in the area! I'm pretty sure that he's a Gray (Grey) squirrel, but the research I've done show that this species is an introduced species to this part of Canada. I know we also have Red Squirrels at the campground (no picture though), but the size and colourization is very noticeable between the individuals. If you know something about squirrels, I'd love to find out for sure which is which!
