Pikas seem to have 2 speeds – frantic running and stopping to perch on the top of a rock. And when they perch on a rock, they have the huddled down pose with their shoulders bunched around their head – it looks a little awkward.
This one has had about enough of me watching him, I believe. It looks like he’s giving me the stink-eye.
Pikas are an endangered species due to climate change.
