May 2018: Sticky Situation

Around here winter didn't get the point when April showed up, and the snow stuck around until just a couple weeks ago.  Spring didn't get a good start until just this week, and now it is already May!
Fortunately, the signs of spring are plentiful now, including a spike in both temperature and in animal activity. Porcupines are very sensitive where habitat is concerned, and while I used to see tons of them when I was a kid they have been quite scarce since then, until recent years when I started seeing them fairly regularly again. I take it as a good sign, even if it means having to be a little more cautious in areas they happen to frequent.

Q: What does a porcupine take for a cold?
A: Ny-Quill!
