What's that? a nest? a bird?


When I got home from work the other day I looked out into the pussy willow bushes I have in my back yard and saw a dark mass within it. I didn't remember seeing it the day before.  I wondered if it was a bird nest, or some weird bird..


it took me far too long to figure out what it was.


and it was not alone


so who knew that porcupines climbed trees?

  11. I thought it was a groundhog at first, but I know they don't climb trees. Would have never guessed a porcupine, if you didn't have that last photo.

    I didn't know they climbed trees either. My mum saw them in the wild when she was in Alaska.

  15. Eastside - groundhogs DO climb trees ! One morning at dawn my dogs treed a groundhog that had wandered into their Invisible-Fenced-in yard. It was up near the top of a 20-25 foot tree. I don't think we have porcupines this far south (NE Ohio). Lots of possums, though ! Great pictures !

  16. We didn't know that. We didn't know that you had porcupines up there, either. That's practically the only spiky thing we don't have this far south.
