California Ground Squirrel makes the alarm call – Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

A California Ground Squirrel makes the alarm call. This little boy is paralyzed. He could ultimately walk around though not that fast. He’s basically warning other squirrels that I’m messing up his bed. Many birders mistake this for a bird call.

California Ground Squirrels have a large vocabulary of vocalizations. They have different sounds to warn others of approaching hawks, coyotes, mean humans, nice humans, snakes, poisonous snakes…

Ground squirrels live in the ground in large burrows in family groupings. Tree squirrels live in nests in the trees like birds.
