Description

Underneath the Doug Fir they had a den/nest- four adults ran out of it. As I stood there each one kept coming back and running back up to me, getting close, looking at me, then taking off. They were acting crazy going in loops and spinning around. I assumed they were trying to "draw" me away from their secret spot under the tree. I followed up the path and three of them stayed ahead of me, doing the same. Finally they simultaneously went up different trees. From there they chirped loudly, looking down at me. Two of them peered down and stamped their feet rapidly, making a loud clicking noise against the trees. They sure told me off! Then they made some impressive leaps to other trees and disappeared back down the way they came.
