Mammal Monday

Groundhog, Marmota monax.
Virginia Opossum, Didelphis virginiana.
Eastern Gray Squirrel, Sciurus carolinensis. This one was whistle-moaning, a sign of raptor-induced anxiety. Another squirrel was huddled on a neighboring tree. I didn’t see the hawk, but sure suspected it was up there somewhere.

    And I thought squirrels were just lousy singers. Maybe they did better when singing in a mixed choir of squirrels, beavers and porcupines.
