Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve White-footed mouse - Peromyscus leucopus. This mouse is a prey species of owls - especially screech owls and barred owls. Unfortunately, this small rhodent is also an important host in the life cycle of the deer tick and the spread of Lyme disease.
