More in the life of the fine, fat groundhog. I call him The General.

He looks mighty healthy! I bet you get a lot of enjoyment watching him (or her).
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

S/he eats well, Ann. S/he thinks it's a resort, I think. Hilarious!

Yes, he's in the back yard just about every day. It's his own private dining room. Hilarious!

Is there a way to tell if it's a male or a female? I mean, do you know? How long has it been coming? Years?

I'm not sure how to tell, Ann. They are territorial so I assumed it is a male but someone explained to me that the behavior suggested it might be a female. And, yes, s/he has been coming for at least 5 years. There were babies at one time but not in several years so this may be a male and the others relocated. They do like their own "territory".

Indeed. I've grown rather fond of The General. Awhile back I spotted someone on the berm back behind our rear chain link fence and they were carrying a gun (which I hope was at least a BB gun). I marched right out there and told him what I thought. Fortunately I didn't get shot. He hasn't been back since. People. Hrumph! Angry

That's why I was asking. I wondered if you had seen babies. I bet they were adorwable! Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Lovey dubby
I understand it could be the same animal as before or maybe not. We once had a rabbit who turned out to be female & used our yard consistently for her nesting. If it had not been for a notch in her ear, I never would have been able to tell her from any other of the rabbits in the area. Eventually, after years, I was able to spot her even when too far away to spy the ear notch. I could tell by size & subtle color differences but that was after watching her for hours almost every day for years.

They were the cutest little miniatures of the parents. I haven't seen babies since. Sad

Oh yay. I've just had a yard full of babies. Well, maybe three or four.
