Squirrel collecting pine cones. Tail quite long but not as bushy as UK's Red Squirrel and did not have tufted ears. Can anyone verify this for me please?

North American red squirrel

It looks like a NA red squirrel to me, with the red pelage and light colour around the eyes. There's a photo of one on my Manitoba web page, although not as good as yours!
Eurasian red squirrels Sciurus vulgaris don't live in the Americas.
