On the Lookout

THis ground squirrel has climbed a bush above it’s burrow and uses it for a lookout.  I’ve never seen a ground squirrel climb a tree.

    I didn’t know there are ground squirrels and climber squirrels . I thought a squirrel is a squirrel. I know squirrels make their nest in trees here in Delaware. Jean

    Hi Dequilter, I’ll try to grab a picture of the burrow where these ground squirrels live. Ground squirrels are different than the species of tree squirrels. For example, they have cheek pockets where as the tree squirrels don’t.
