Week 35 – Backyard Visitor

Each spring we look forward to possibly catching a glimpse of the neighborhood badger digging in our backyard.  This year we’ve seen it quite a few times, and it even stayed around long enough to get a few shots of him digging in the ground squirrel holes looking for a snack.  Those poor ground squirrels have had a rough season so far.  In late April we watched as a long-tailed weasel raided their burrow.  We haven’t seen any ground squirrel babies yet, but we’re hoping they’ll emerge when things warm up again soon!
