Christina and I decided to go for a walk on the waterfront as a way to get out of the house for a bit yesterday. I’m really glad we did as we came across this little guy! It’s a California Ground Squirrel, something I’d never seen, especially here in Washington. Apparently they are relatively common in Oregon and come from California. It was munching on some nice clover-like creeping ground cover. We probably spent 15-20 minutes just watching it munch away and scurry around; it was incredibly docile. Can’t wait to get out some more in the near future and enjoy nature!
