Douglas Squirrel

The Douglas Squirrel is by far the most vocal of all the squirrels here at Collier Memorial State Park.  Their high-pitched bark it is probably most often mistaken for a birdcall if not followed closely. Every morning when I open the Gift Shop I get a loud and long protest from this little guy in the pine tree by the front porch. I don’t know if he thinks it’s his cabin, or he doesn’t like me making a wood fire, but he is definitely not happy with my presence.
