This morning, between rain showers, I happened to look out the window and saw this interloper taking its leisure in the shade garden next to the patio.






Of course, She-Who-Rules-The-Yard [:-doggy] took exception to the intruder and barked furiously and bravely, albeit from a distance. She continued to bark long after the hapless creature had ambled back to the woods until I wacked her with a broom because she was driving me [:-crazy].

Here's a grey squirrel from Maritime Canada. I coax them to the patio table with peanuts dipped in peanut butter. If I stay still, they'll lick off the peanut butter then off to eat or bury the peanut. One of my summer distractions!

Robert, Palm squirrels are new to me, Never heard of them, that I can recall. I'll have to research...One of the great things about this forum is almost each and every day you learn something new'.. [:-mouse]

Great pics, thanks for sharing.

Ted & Mike, I'm possibly wrong about the squirrels. Probably are chipmunks. Not being from North America, I'm not so familiar with all your creatures.
From my further reading, the Palm Squirrel & Chipmunk are often confused.

Dave, thanks for the correct info about the sheep.
Always good to have local knowledge.
Cheers

Actually, those are bighorn sheep, not mountain goats, in the first couple of photos.

Those ground squirrels look like what we call chipmunks down here.

Glad you like them Frank.

On our way back from Johnston Canyon, we came across these eight mountain goats on the side of the road. They weren't fazed by the cars at all.
I don't know what they were eating, as it only seemed to rock and gravel in that area.





We also saw these the deer on the way back from Lake Minnewanka.

As part of our trip, we spent 3 days in Banff, which is in the middle of a National Park, so plenty more creatures there.

Here's some deer, that came to have a feed on some bush's outside of our lodge.
The bush's were covered in tiny thorns, so I don't know how they could eat them.








quartergauger48 Posted - 06/03/2016 : 7:52:54 PM
They sure look a lot like Chipmunks'..I have plenty of them running around under the bird feeders'...
robert goslin Posted - 06/03/2016 : 7:46:23 PM
Thanks for the warning Dave. I'm not frothing at the mouth yet, so guess I'm O.K.
deemery Posted - 06/01/2016 : 09:30:38 AM
The problem with those ground squirrels is they tend to be vectors for really nasty diseases like plague. So best to keep your distance from them... But yeah, they are cute.
