A red squirrel eats a Spring pinecone along the Perseverance Trail on Sunday. Red squirrels claim a half-acre to one-acre territory and exclusive rights to harvest cones in that area. They are the only tree squirrel in Alaska that is active by day. Red squirrels are important prey for goshawks and an Alaska Department of Fish and Game survey showed that in spruce bottoms between Herbert and Eagle rivers north of Juneau they comprise 75 percent of a goshawks diet.
