しずかにあるけばいろいろなものがみえてきます。- If you walk quietly you can see many

things. 🐾

July 10 hike - episode 4:

Another critter spotted! This time it's a pika. For those that were with me a year ago I have talked about pikas then, but let me just repeat some of it here.

Pikas are related to rabbits, but are smaller. They share the same habitat with marmots that I talked about in my last post. They have large ears and are pretty cute animals overall. While the marmot sounds the alarm like a whistle, pikas have a really high pitch alarm sound.

I encountered pikas higher up on the trail. One came down from a rock, got closer to me and proceeded to nibble on some grass. This gave me a decent opportunity for close-ups.

Spot the pika in the last image! 🧐

    It’s my first time to see pikas! They are so cute 😃 I’m going on a hike this weekend, so I’ll try to walk quietly. 🐾

    @Ayano yes, about that. They can be hard to spot, they really blend into the rocks.

    @Jake Shriek! I didn’t know how I should have said about their making sound. 新しい言葉を学びました。 ありがとう🥰!

    Oh, there he is! I haven’t heard about pika. Is that kind of a marmot? Sooo cute☺️

    @Tommy they are different families entirely. Marmots belong to the squirrel family and pikas are related to rabbits. 😃
