I haven't posted here in quite some time. I have to admit, I have been rather slack in my squirrel observations. However, I did see what appeared to be mating activity of fox squirrels near my house. I am now an intern until August at the Audubon center in Dallas. I haven't yet seen any squirrels there, but I will try to remember to post if I do. I will be making a new blog featuring my pets, since that is what is occupying much of my time.

I just got back from a backpacking trip in the Pecos Wilderness in northern New Mexico. I saw my very first marmot, which was most likely a yellow-bellied marmot (Marmota flaviventris). I also saw some golden-mantled ground squirrels, red squirrels, and Least and Colorado chipmunks.
Pictured below are a golden-mantled ground squirrel and a least chipmunk, two of the most common mammals in the Pecos Wilderness.

You might not believe this, but there are squirrel charities out there. One such charity is the Lovely Lita's Sheltering Tree Foundation, located in the Tampa Bay area in Florida. They help raise and rehabilitate baby and injured gray squirrels. Kudos to this rescue group. The link to their website is: Squirrellady.org. You can buy from their store or make a donation, as I have. The image of the late Lita the squirrel is from their website.
