I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

A little squirrelly

Although Cesar Chavez Park is a habitat for burrowing owls, my bad luck with owls persisted -- wrong time of day, wrong time of year.

However, I did get to see this ground squirrel stand on a rock and shriek. I'm not sure what was going on; the animal didn't appear to be in any distress. But every few minutes it emitted another unnerving high-pitched cry.
