It's a quiet morning on South Perry so the blog was captivated by this story in today's paper: warming adds to marmots' mealtime.
And that got the blog thinking about urban wildlife up here: one reader pointed out that the squirrels seem unusually brazen this year - what do you think? Do you feed squirrels? The blog occasionally does and is not afraid to admit it. Haven't spotted any marmots on Perry Street, have you?
Last year it seemed like every single skunk from the rest of the city had moved to South Perry - the stink was incredible - every night - what's it like this year?
The blog has already seen a couple of coyotes - rather big sized, bad guys - have you seen any?
And what's your racoon policy? Cute cuddly critters --- or pests from hell?
