Just got back from Canada. Plenty of wildlife there.
Here's some Indian Palm squirrels at Lake Louise.
A novelty for us as we don't have squirrels in Oz. They were really tame and would run up and grab our hand, thinking we had food.

The problem with those ground squirrels is they tend to be vectors for really nasty diseases like plague. So best to keep your distance from them... But yeah, they are cute.

Thanks for the warning Dave. I'm not frothing at the mouth yet, so guess I'm O.K.

As part of our trip, we spent 3 days in Banff, which is in the middle of a National Park, so plenty more creatures there.

Here's some deer, that came to have a feed on some bush's outside of our lodge.
The bush's were covered in tiny thorns, so I don't know how they could eat them.

Glad you like them Frank.

On our way back from Johnston Canyon, we came across these eight mountain goats on the side of the road. They weren't fazed by the cars at all.
I don't know what they were eating, as it only seemed to rock and gravel in that area.





We also saw these the deer on the way back from Lake Minnewanka.

Those ground squirrels look like what we call chipmunks down here.

Actually, those are bighorn sheep, not mountain goats, in the first couple of photos.

Ted & Mike, I'm possibly wrong about the squirrels. Probably are chipmunks. Not being from North America, I'm not so familiar with all your creatures.
From my further reading, the Palm Squirrel & Chipmunk are often confused.

Dave, thanks for the correct info about the sheep.
Always good to have local knowledge.
Cheers

Robert, Palm squirrels are new to me, Never heard of them, that I can recall. I'll have to research...One of the great things about this forum is almost each and every day you learn something new'..

Here's a grey squirrel from Maritime Canada. I coax them to the patio table with peanuts dipped in peanut butter. If I stay still, they'll lick off the peanut butter then off to eat or bury the peanut. One of my summer distractions!
