I heard a little rustle in the leaves at Wiley Park and saw this little mouse scurry up the tree and out onto a branch. This is the first mouse I have seen there. I’ve heard rustling in the leaves many times but always thought it must be a bird. Maybe it was a mouse?
So, I took some photographs up on the branch and then in the leaves below and came home to research what kind of mouse it was. I presumed it was a “Field Mouse.” Well, there are so many different types of mice, I have no idea what kind it is.
Can anyone identify this little guy? Cute, isn’t he?
