Species Code: SCNI
Breeding Range Map
This is an introduced species native to the eastern U.S., with habitat requirements associated with broadleaf, nut-bearing trees. Found much more commonly on the eastside of the Cascades in the Okanogan and in the southeast.
On the east side, occurs in low-density development, pastures and orchards, hardwood and mixed forest, and riparian areas. It seems more able to expand into "natural" areas on the east side than on the west side. May compete with both the Eastern Gray Squirrel and the Western Gray Squirrel.
