A Second Look--December 19, 2012

Here's what I saw this week during a Second Look.

Scraggly mum

This is a very light weight bone fragment. Not sure what that means or where it came from.

As evidenced by the sticks and leaves around this groundhog hole, the groundhog is in hibernation. When it is in an active stage, the hole has fresh dirt around its entrance.

I found several tufts of fur like this, but I'm not sure what it's from. (I vote for rabbit.) I looked for more signs of the animal, but didn't find any.

The forsythia tried to bloom during a couple of our warm days. However, they didn't last for long.
