    Default That's Not a Bird....

    I know: I almost always photograph birds, and that's what I seek out. However, when something else interesting appears, I shoot that also. That was the case with this family of "rock-chucks." They are much like the woodchucks in the eastern half of the US; these are a bit smaller and lighter in color, etc. Grizzly bears & eagles love 'em.

    Thanks for the replies, everyone! Haven't seen this bunch of rock-chucks since I first found them several weeks ago. Hope some wingnut didn't shoot 'em. These are harmless, especially where they were located.
