Marmot Babies

This is the first year we've seen baby marmots at the Chicken Dance Ranch. I know some people think they are a nuisance, but I find them entertaining to watch, especially the youngsters as they scamper around the rocks chasing each other. I've learned these are yellow-bellied marmots.

 Can you find Mom and 3 of her 4 young-uns?

That is just too cool. I was in my yard yesterday watching birds and trying to find where their nests are. I have owls again this year but haven't seen the little ones yet.
