Ground Nesting Bird Warning

American Badger is a resident on the plains and Chico is no exception. Although their primary food source on the Chico is spotted ground squirrels and black-tailed prairie dogs, the majority of birds nesting here nest on the ground and badgers find them easy prey. American Badgers are nocturnal except when feeding young. They choose sandy soils so it is surprising more badgers are not seen, especially in early morning hours. This one came out to see who was present at midday.
