MALHEUR MAMMALS

We saw more than ten species of wild mammal on the recent Malheur trip, not all in Harney County.  Here are some images:

Loping “antelope” which is actually a pronghorn, not a true antelope. This one was in Lake County’s Christmas Valley sagebrush.

Pair of Belding’s ground squirrels eating one of my hand-outs at Collier State Park, Klamath County.

Pygmy rabbit at Malheur Field Station.

Marmots at Page Springs Campground.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Least chipmunk, smallest of the American chipmunks and jackrabbit.  Both around Malheur Field Station.
