Critter log: April 14, 2016

Happy to see that Marcus the groundhog has survived the winter. He has either cloned himself, fathered a fully grown groundhog, or imported his long lost brother, Quartus, to his roadside domain. Not a lot of green grasses to munch at the moment. Conspicuously missing from view this spring is Caecilius, the wild turkey that, for two years, has traversed the ridge as a lone crusader. Has he made nice-nice with the flock? Is he their new storyteller? Or is he still solo and on some spring walk-about?
