Observed small rodent bounding over deep snow in my backyard from shed toward chicken coop. Went outside and found it tucked up in the rafters. Reddish top and white below with a clear separation. Left it alone.
3:00 pm, caught sneaking around in the garage.
He has large black circles around his eyes, but a white underneath known for most deer mouses.
Lo encontré muerto.

Was found halfway out of a beer bottle. Poor guy was soaked in beer. We were able to get him out and he happily ran away. He was also washed with water.

Se extiende por toda Norteamérica a excepción del sudeste de Estados Unidos y el extremo norte del continente. Es un conocido portador de hantavirus, que pueden ser trasmitido a los seres humanos. Está estrechamente emparentado con el Peromyscus leucopus, el ratón de patas blancas.
