Ground Squirrel Ungrounded

This little Mexican Ground Squirrel put on a good show at Laguna Seca Ranch.  It was very cool to see him climb one of the perches and then come get a drink out of the pond.

  1. Beautiful. Looks like it’s pretending to be the captain of the ship in the second one.

    • Thanks Lyle. We were all surprised when he started climbing the stick. He was a nice change of pace from the bird action.
