Alpine farmers?

Continuing with the American Pika theme this week!!!

Our busy friend is collecting Alpine vegetation from in between the talus. An especially fascinating detail about Pika behavior is they place their hay in the sun to dry before storing in their dens, thus preventing the harvest from spoiling. The drying process is exactly the same humans use when harvesting hay; the crop is mown, left lying in the sun in the field to dry, then it's baled.

How amazing is it the little Alpine farmer known as the American Pika does that, too?
