"LOST AT SEA" by KAREN WILES
Imagine my surprise when I stopped along the Pacific Highway to take a beautiful image of the coastal waters of Oregon and this little guy popped his head up at just the right moment. He was a total and unexpected surprise of my photography shoot for the day, but he was a welcomed surprise!
The California Ground Squirrel is a large, long-tailed gray squirrel with a large, nearly black, triangular patch between light-gray shoulder patches. The gray dorsal pelage is speckled with buffy white spots. The tail is bushy, but not so full and spreading as those of tree squirrels.
In Oregon, it occurs throughout the area west of the Cascade Range and eastward through southern Klamath and Lake counties to Lakeview, Lake County. An arm of the range also extends from the Columbia River in Hood River, Wasco, and Sherman counties southward through Jefferson and Crook counties to Prineville, Crook County. It is considered among the most generalized of the ground squirrels; it inhabits a variety of habitats.
Although it is a ground-dwelling squirrel it has a strong propensity to climb. It ic commonly observed sitting on fence posts, stumps, brush piles, foundations of razed buildings, boulders or other objects that extend above the grade, and occasionally up in trees.
