Backyard Visitor

blog porcupine_1025 a

Walking into the backyard this afternoon we encountered a surprise, a little porcupine. Our little visitor was happily feasting on the plants in our flowerbeds. As the weather closed in and it started to rain, he moved in close to the house sheltering out of the rain.  He seemed pretty comfortable in the backyard, perhaps he has been there all spring and summer without us noticing him.

    • He is adorable. I am wondering if the mom put him in our backyard to keep him safe. We watched him from a distance as he ate away.

      • We live beside a wooded area that functions as a wildlife corridor. At night we often see pairs of porcupines waddling down the street. We have also on occasion found them up in our trees; they don’t look like they can climb, but they do.
