Columbian Ground Squirrels

Ground Squirrel Index    Columbian Ground Squirrels  
Wildlife    Humane Live Traps

The Columbian Ground Squirrel is identified by is reddish brown face, forelegs and belly, tan feet, reddish tail edge in white around the back and tip and its gray and black colored body. They eat grasses plant stems and leaves, seeds, bulbs, insects and birds. Large colonies of the Columbian Ground Squirrel often damage grain fields when close to these particular types of crops.
Columbian Ground Squirrels are found in open alpine meadows and dry grasslands in eastern British Columbia, western Alberta Canada, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. 
Adults mate in early spring and female Columbian Ground Squirrels have 3-5 babies in May or June. Those that live in lower elevations tend to give birth to more babies. Young Columbian Ground Squirrels are hairless for 3 days and are walking within two weeks. Mothers keep their young near them throughout their first winter. Once a female is born into a colony, she stays with them for life, unlike the males who will leave the colony after a few months.
The Columbian Ground Squirrel sleeps 7-8 months out of the year in a chamber sealed off from the rest of the tunnel system. Unlike other ground squirrels, male adults will store some food in its hibernation chamber to eat after awakening because they leave the burrow before the females and young. 
Unlike other ground squirrels, burrows of the Columbian Ground Squirrel are created with several holes in a circle with a mound of dirt in the middle to act as a “watchtower”.
