Toolik Field Station, Alaska 2017. Part 5: Ground Squirrels!

in #photography3 years ago (edited)

Somewhere between a gopher and a chipmunk, we get this.

Unfortunately, I surprised this little guy who was pensively gazing out over the lake

Colloquially known as "sik-siks", these little rodents are just like your average grey squirrel, only twice as big and a little noisier!


Toolik Field Station , Alaska 2017:

If this is your first time reading my blog, thanks for checking it out! I am at Toolik Field Station off of the Dalton Highway in Alaska. I am working on a longterm ecological research (LTER) project through Marine Biological Laboratory for the summer. I'm doing my best to post about all of the amazing things in the Low Arctic environment, I'd love it if you'd read along and commented!
