Marmota Monax Update

Marmota monaxHow many Groundhog/Woodchucks are there in Brooklyn? We saw three the other day.Marmota monaxThese two were munching near a burrow now completely covered by understory growth. The second pictured here was rather smaller than the first, so perhaps it was a youngster. The third of the day’s Whistlepigs was some distance away.
