Ground squirrel most call it...sweet thing. Sorry, I am no bleeding heart but these little animals are a boon in your landscape. They are territorial. That means you will not have any population explosions.
Grubs, are their primary diet. Great for control. Ground dwelling very industrious mammals are aerating your soil, top dressing your lawn and beds. Just knock down the little hills of soil with a leaf rake or even a broom. Just brush them down and out into the lawn thinly. I got PAID to do this service for our clients. Dumping topsoil on top of the lawn and raking it in? Running an aerator pulling plugs of sod and soil from the lawn and letting them lie where they fall. To disintegrate.
These animals do all of that for free. Maybe munch a bulb or two? I'd buy them bulbs to eat. They don't do that until the dead of winter, usually.
These little guys; moles, gophers, shrews, even voles are great additions to your landscape, I kid you not. To get rid of them means that others will very quickly take those niches. They are not the bad guys everyone makes them out to be, at all.
Great pictures. There is possibly a male and female and a nest of babies. When the babies get self sufficient they get tossed out by mommy and daddy. As all mommy and daddy animals should, grins.
They also add their little poo poo pellets while digging these tunnels. These guys just might make a few tunnels that collapse but remember, there are only two at the most. You are having way too much fun! Sweet pictures.
