Marmot on Alert

Must let everyone know

Marmot on Alert, in Rainier-Wildlife; Landscape by John Christopher

A hoary Marmot on mount Rainier takes on a defensive posture as it starts to generate a high pitched sound to alert its family of the presence of a Coyote nearby. The almost hypersonic sound also seems to have a deterrent effect on the Coyote. Early Summer greenery frames the foggy scene.
