Squirrels spend their days playing, eating, leaping from branch to branch, stealing birdseed from feeders, and generally annoying any nearby birds. They are like small circus performers, and are very entertaining to watch. Eastern grey squirrels are found throughout the eastern United States to just west of the Mississippi River and north into Canada. They have been introduced into some part of the western United states and some areas of Canada where they were not previously found. They have also been introduced into Italy, Scotland, England, and Ireland. In these places eastern grey squirrels are considered a pest species. They compete with native European red squirrels. In some areas, the native squirrels are becoming threatened and endangered as a result of this competition.
