Any day spent outside is a day well spent and such was my case on this Saint Paddy’s Day.
I first followed the oversized bird prints of some Turkeys, which led to . . .
Tom in full display . . .
As he strutted before a few ladies, which led to . . .
Total nonchalance on the part of the ladies as they passed by, which led to . . .
Tom and his brother, Tom, giving chase, which led to . . .
the realization that a Bobcat had crossed the Turkey trail, which led to . . .
a tree with branches scattered on the snow below, which led to . . .
taking a closer look to make sure the twigs were snipped at a 45˚ angle, which led to . . .
following a familiar and fresh trail of pigeon-toed prints, which led to . . .
a sign carved into the cambium layer of a Beech tree, indicating a certain mammal lives near here, which led to . . .
an open door with more signage on either side announcing the resident, which led to . . .
a peek inside and today’s great discovery of a Porcupine at home, which led to . . .
the realization that though St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, which My Guy celebrates, he was born in Scotland and thus today’s finds were due to the Luck of the Scottish.
Oh, and check out that fine pile of scat the Porcupine is sitting upon.
