Ground Hog Day Musings

The eastern US is getting slammed with a snow storm... “the official weather genius” ground hog lives in the east... he did not see his shadow this morning...that means that spring will come early. (As you can tell from the above picture, we are not in the eastern US.)
Now, if the ground hog was a westerner, the forecast would be different. Which leads me to wonder if “the” ground hog really knows what he’s doing after all? We don’t have ground hogs in the park, just pesky little ground squirrels. They saw their shadow this morning.

Not related to ground hogs or spring, are the opportunistic woodpeckers. Who knew that Acorn Woodpeckers like sweet nectar from a hummingbird feeder?
