Douglas Squirrel

Tamiasciurus douglasiiDavid Douglas did get the small, vocal Tamiasciurus douglasii named after him, both ways.

We saw one at Ecola State Park and a few more at Hoyt Arboretum in Portland, where this one was photographed well enough to present to you, but mostly we heard them. They let you know whose woods these are…

(Looks like some blood-gorged ticks there on the upper arm and in the ear.)
