Day 4.155: How much wood...?
As far as I am aware, they do not chuck wood but they do eat plants - and considering we are already overrun by a chipmunk population explosion it is probably the last thing we need. We were hoping for a visit from a fox or something else that might control our small mammal population rather than adding to it.
It brings our yard-count of mammals to seven (excluding humans, dogs, cats and, more-questionably, mice which we've only seen inside the house) adding to: squirrel (gray), chipmunk, rabbit (cotton-tail), deer (white-tail), raccoon and opossum. We're pretty sure we've had a skunk as well but never actually seen one.
