This pika’s home is right next to a trail through a talus field in Grand Teton National Park. By being quiet and still we were able to watch him for quite awhile.
Right across the trail, I just got this shot of a weasel:
(The size of the animals in relation to each other in these photos is deceiving. The pika is about the size of an adult fist and the weasel is the size of a large house cat.)
On another day we saw a Marmot and a Pika together along another section of trail:
and one year we watched a pika scampering with food to dry and store for the winter.
These photos were taken in Cascade Canyon, Grand Teton National Park
Most Americans pronounce Pika “pike-a”, Canadians “peeek-a.”
