Woodchucks Galore!

Andrew Block asked me to report the following Woodchuck plague – sounds pretty impressive!  It appears to have been a bumper year for rodents big and small out east.


Yesterday while driving around in Putnam and Dutchess Cos., NY, the Woodchucks were everywhere!  I must have had a total of 15 or more along US & S. Rtes. 44, 55, 82, and 9, several local roads in the area, and the Taconic Pkwy.  They were along roadsides and in yards and were adults and youngsters.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many.
