The singing vole has a high-pitched alarm call and lives in colonies with extensive underground tunnels. Singing voles gather huge amounts of vegetation and tubers and store them in underground burrows to use during the winter. Denali National Park & Preserve - Nature & Science
The singing vole eats lupines, arctic locoweed, horsetail, and sedge. Its range encompasses Alaska, Yukon, and the Northwest Territories. It breeds from May to September. Gestation is 21 days. The singing vole may have up to 3 litters/year, with 4-12 young/litter. (John Whitaker Jr., 1996) Physical Environment
Not especially wary, the singing vole often comes out into the open to clip off a lupine stem and drag it back to its hay pile. So, if you can find a freshly excavated burrow or a pile of vole hay curing around the stems of a willow or under a log, you may be able to spot a singing vole. Sit quietly, watch the burrow, and listen for single-note, bird-like chirps. Government of Yukon - Environment - Voles
