Abundant wildlife! ~ Margo’s Plymouth Report

Amazing weather and the perfect time to enjoy it before school begins.  Melissa and I met friends from MA at Shaftsbury State Park on Friday, an ideal COVID meeting place.  Small, tucked away with a charming swimming area.  Sun and shade and large, very clean port-a-potties – what more could you want!

Although I am seeing fewer hummingbirds these days, other wildlife is abundant.  My driveway alarm alerted me to three visitors early one morning last week.  When I looked out, it was a doe and 2 fawns, nibbling their way up the side of my driveway.
I have been noticing that my cherry tomatoes are disappearing, just when they are ripe and I am planning to pick them.  A visitor noted that she witnessed a chipmunk munching away!

Then on a walk on Sunday, I passed a house and heard a noise.  I thought it strange because there were no cars there.  Then I noticed a shed door pushed open and a large bear saw me, just as I saw it.  I imagine it considered me to be a threat because still clinging to a full black garbage bag, it sprinted deeper into the woods.

So, only creature info this week.  Send me some news!
