I've seen an older chuck out there (Valdemar D. Voodchuck, Esq.),and assume there must be a Ms Chuck around as well.
In case anyone wondered what woodchucks do during those long,cold winter months, wonder no longer !
It's very difficult too see (yes, I have all sorts of alibis) - but, for a while, two of the young chucks were playing with this discarded BMX bike in the adjoining yard.
They would take turns climbing up the back wheel,and sitting on the rear fender. If you look carefully, you'll see one sitting there.
It served no useful purpose that I could see,but I suppose the Naturalists could come up with one.
I'd be inclined to believe - like youngsters everywhere - they were just foolin' around .
UPDATE: Sat out back and counted 4 chucks in my yard,plus a big adult in the adjoining yard. If this keeps up, I'll soon have an indigenous lawn -cutting crew !
