Buckingham Springs, Bucks Co, PA.
Juvenile.
A couple of these cuties were apparently dozing on the sidewalk in the morning--maybe their first day out of the nest and they didn't know they were vulnerable? I read that White-footed Mice can be distinguished from similar Deer Mice by the absence of a bicolored tail. But if someone knows otherwise, please let me know.
