The New Rodent

At last, I have a picture of the new rodent living in our back yard. I’m not sure what kind of rodent it is. I thought either a groundhog or a gopher. I put two pictures on Flickr a few minutes ago and so far we have one vote for groundhog. Does the community agree?

What is this?  Is it a gopher?

So what do you think this little critter is?

Yeah, that’s a skunk digging around under the bird feeder. I just saw a squirrel approach it. He didn’t come too close, and then he ran up a tree. Let us hope that squirrels are smart enough to not get sprayed.
