A very noisy neighbor in the campground

Soon after setting up our first campsite in Jasper National Park, I began hearing this very odd sound – almost like a screeching. Not quite like a bird but also not anything I had heard before. Keeping watch I finally found the culprit – a Colombian Ground Squirrel. They were usually quiet but sometimes, for whatever reason, they could raise quite a ruckus.

They are common in the northern Rocky Mountains and in the coldest parts of their reach, they hibernate the majority of the year. You can read more about them here.
