Cute Minnesota Wildlife
Chipmunks, for instance.
(This picture comes from a website I 'googled', in case you're interested.)
Yesterday, I mowed around the corner of the propane tank...and I guess the excavation began after I'd graciously cleared the site.
By evening, a LOT of gravel was already piled up. From my office, I could watch him* burrow--lol, it's really cool to see. Such quick little kicks, and the dirt literally flew!
(No problem--at least he didn't choose the middle of the yard.)
*Who really cares if it's a him or a her?
Ha! I just took this picture through the screen:

Ya see him?
So, I went back in the house to "post about it " ...lol
As I sat down at the computer, I heard (What's that???) rapid bump! bump! bumps...ON the house. Oh, oh...MORE wildlife for YOU!!
LOL...must be young woodpeckers, 'cuz they (THEY!) let me get pretty close:
Sheesh...now I need to do some hole filling on the house. I found at least 6 small caverns on the east and south sides...damn.
How cute is all that wildlife NOW, Birdie, huh?
