Near the same trashcan as the honey bees, it was an absolute smorgasbord for woodland critters like this squirrel.

He managed to scrape up and eat an avocado skin (with the sticker still attached!) and munch on it while making angry noises at our large dog. It was funny to hear him angrily chew at his food while trying to be intimidating. I guess he had his priorities in this moment.

I'm not very good with my woodland critters, so I used the "friendsofgriffithpark.org" website to help guess what type of squirrel this is. There were many and yes, every time we passed by, they had rude comments about my dog. :)

While walking along the lake, found this little dude hanging out in some shallow rocks.Maybe someones pet once, I'm not sure, but fully-grown regardless. I got too excited when I saw how close he was to the edge of the water. Managed a few pictures. Looks to be sleeping?

Used the iNaturalist to help identify this turtle. Wasn't aware there were several sliders until the database showed me. :)

This was a fun but careful one! I think I got really lucky taking this picture; I had to be slow and patient and was very happy with the results! This guy was striding through the shallow edge of the lake picking at little plants here and there before I approached him. Very beautiful bird! :) Allowed me to get a little closer each time. You can see how cautious he looks haha.

The Whittier Narrows provided a plaque for visitors to identify this guy.

Description

This squirrel interacts well with humans got close enough to take food from my hands. Real friendly and active going up and down a tree for food. He ate right in front me in hot weather 80 F degree but was in the shade. Nhpbs.org website has the squirrel eating the same way and form as this one, it’s images confirms its identity.
