Defending the Groundhog

On February 2nd this year, Phil (of Punxsutawney) said we would have a much longer winter season.  So, you can understand that when I saw these harbingers of spring hoping around our front yard, I was quite upset that they were dissing my rodent friends.  Now, I am not completely biased against birds in general, but I also can’t say I am a big fan of these feathery fiends.

In case you can’t make out what I am growling at, it is a robin – the state bird of Michigan and the proverbial sign of spring (“spring is here I know, I know.  The redbreast robin told me so.”).


Now, to be clear, I am not opposed to spring coming, but come on folks.  Respect the hog!
