Short video clip of a shrew—either Sorex cinereus or monticolus—sole Southeast genus in the order Soricomorpha. In July, 2012, hikers on Perseverance trail encountered an irruption of shrews. Even longtime Juneau naturalists had never seen anything like it. They moved so fast all my still shots came out blurred, so I gave up and took a movie. (Bomboid freneticism suggested the sound track–Flight of the bumblebee.)
