Dead outside of a house. Poisoned, perhaps?
Seen near trail during evening hike with family.
Runways in grass, with grass clippings & scats. Extra photos show adjacent habitat. Probably Sigmodon arizonae? based on known range.

This species of mouse is abundant on rocky cliffs and boulders at around 5700' elevation and higher.
I have not identified this to species but think it is either the brush mouse, Peromyscus boylei, or maybe more likely, the white-ankled mouse, P. pectoralis, both of which occur in the habitat (DeBaca and Jones, Report on the mammals of the Davis Mountains Preserve, unpubl.)
Adult active in boulders and cliff crevices in pinyon-juniper-oak woodlands alongside road.

Tentative ID of Woodrat as it has some fur on its tail. There were two of them eating the buds of a Rose of Sharon tree that hangs over the side of the driveway. I could not get a photo of both of them together.
This little mouse, perhaps 2-3 inches long without the tail, was foraging for food in the cabin at night. Although perhaps a House Mouse would be the expected species, the eyes look big and the tail somewhat bicolored, so I'm wondering if this could be Peromyscus instead?
