Who wins the feeder war, the bigger Gray Squirrel or much smaller Red Squirrel? If you've been following this channel over the years you will no doubt pick correctly. Red squirrels don't take bluffs and false charges by Gray Squirrels kindly and will run themselves with reckless abandon even high in the trees to intimidate. This one barely hangs on by a claw and then recovers to obtain the spoils. See youtu.be/aFFZMtUQTio for an example of two red squirrels going at it high in the trees. Note the Chipmunk wisely just stays out of the idea.
What is surprising is that in the UK where Gray Squirrels were introduced they have a tendency to dominate the native Red Squirrels and take over their zone. Perhaps the red squirrels there had evolved to be more passive due to lack of contest and are more easily intimidated.
