I’m not sure if this is a Gopher or a Prairie Dog, but whatever it is I imagine that it was just trying to enjoy the nut it found when the birds around it decided that they wanted their share too.
I think the birds are Grackles. I didn’t see many of this kind of bird this year, but they usually love our bird feeders!
I guess this Prairie Dog knows how we feel when we eat outside and we’re all of a sudden surrounded by Sea Gulls or Pigeons. Eh?
