Thirteen-Lined Ground Squirrel mama with one of the babies

This little guy found some lunch

He's very small - only a few inches tall

Mama with one of the babies

Looking for food before going back in their hole in the ground

We spent 2 nights in a nice campground near the town of Stoughton, Wisconsin, south of Madison, Wisconsin. Stoughton is a small town with some pretty historic buildings in the downtown area. We went to a cheese shop to get some Wisconsin cheese.Back at the campground we had a family of Thirteen-lined ground squirrels right behind the camper. I counted the mama and 9 babies. We don't have squirrels like this at home! We hre heading south!
