The Eastern Woodchuck is the bane of farmers and gardeners alike as they have voracious appetites and consume many types of vegetation.
This animal; however, was a welcome visitor at the backwoods bird feeding station this past week, when he provided a wonderful photographic opportunity as he was illuminated by the rays of the late evening sun.
There is a controversy as to whether woodchucks can climb trees, but I have seen them do it often during my years afield. They sometimes do it to survey the countryside for danger. as this chuck is doing, but it was there in the first place because of the feeding station, which is concealed in the snag.
