Chiricahua, AZ squirrel ID
These are from June, 2010. Reading Richard Webb’s excellent trip report reminded me I had never decided what they were. The first was all over the place at the SW research station and was maybe 20% larger than Eastern Gray. The second was at a campground down the road from the station and was maybe 80% larger than Eastern Gray.
In my defense, the BCI trip leader called the first one an “Apache Squirrel”, which threw me off. And I didn’t have much experience in the area at the time.
