Natural Bird Feeder
The birds love the feeder my father made for them..
Featured are the Red-bellied Woodpecker, Blue-Jay and White-breasted Nuthatch
It turns out Woodchucks are a bunch of Hams and love the camera. Watch the little ones outsmart the neighborhood cats and well.. just doing what Woodchucks do..
Why do Groundhogs gorge themselves all Summer and Fall anyway? During the 4-6 month hibernation, a Groundhog will curl up in a frost free chamber of their burrow while all of their life processes begin to slow. Their temperature will drop from 96 to 40 degrees, barely above freezing. Respiration slows to one breath per minute and heartbeat plunges from 110 beats per minute to 4. They achieve a state of unconsciousness until its time to awaken in late Winter or early Spring. (excerpt from the book "Animal Speak")
Imagine the things a Groundhog has seen in this trance so close to the line of life and death!
Groundhogs know deep things..
