Swampwalk quarantine social distance day 216

Left later than usual, brought the inlaws out to the swamp for the first time. They had some unique viewpoints on much of the flora and fauna while we perambulated for about a mile.

Critter count -primary beastie was a whistle pig (aka groundhog) that ran past us well within two feet. A fat little sucker, with a huge mouthful of leaves, we assume to line the burrow for winter. Super cute, and surprise to see so up close and personal.

Other stuff include a while gang of starlings, many dragonflies and cabbage moths, several gulls, one osprey. No sign of the neighborhood kitties, but the Belgian Shepherd made a point of being heard. I keep forgetting her name… Kita, maybe?

A lot of puffball fungus, but only a few toadstools. No new progress on the sign framework from the other day.

Houses are all decked for Halloween, and the neighborhood is of a split mind regarding trick or treating. My thoughts are hell no… but some people prefer risk of death and a couple of free Hershey bars over common sense in a pandemic.
