Groundhog Day

Just after dinner we noticed this little guy foraging on the lawn and standing up every now and then to check for predators. It's the first groundhog/woodchuck I've seen and it was pretty comfortable with me following it around the garden to get some photos.

We've had a couple of birds hit our windows this year, but luckily I've been able to revive both of them just by picking them up in some paper towel and moving them into the shade for an hour and then once I go back to check on them they quickly perk up and fly off. Apparently this one is a young 'Indigo Bunting', which if said repeatedly sounds absolutely bizarre.

Indigo Bunting.

Indigo Bunting, Indigo Bunting.
