One of the things that I love about where I live is the abundance of the wildlife that is here. We get to see some pretty amazing creatures up close! Today, I am featuring one of the smaller critters in the area. It is the Ground Squirrel. These little critters sure are cute, but I will tell you, they are destructive to the trees and gardens. However, my focus is not on this issue. For today, I wanted to share with you some photos of this critter that I took just the other day. This little fellow was feeding on the wild bird seed we put out.
Please let me introduce you to the Ground Squirrel!
This critter loves the bird seed.
I noticed how the birds give him a wide berth.
After feeding for quite a while, he stops and takes a short break.
He goes back to feeding filling up those cheek pouches.
For the last shot in this series of photos, I would like to ask that you click on the photo to enlarge it. Before this fellow runs off, he raises his face. Notice the chubby cheeks!
Isn’t that cute?
Well, that is it for today. I hope that you enjoyed this post. Thank you for taking the time to stop by, and I hope that you have a wonderful day! Be well… ^..^
