Uinta Ground Squirrel _locally: potgut

It was my intention to visit and a photo shoot of these little ground squirrels. But when a pulled in there was a Red-tailed hawk with one down (see thread)

So the colony was a little upset/wary, I didn't get any out running around but here is a series of managed ops.

They are smaller than a prairie dog and don't have a bushy tail like a ground squirrel, (wiki here) when they cross the road while your driving you know how the got the nickname "potgut"
