Challenge #1

This is not from my backyard, but I did see him on a trail last month in northern lower Michigan.

I’ll start you out easily.  For August your challenge (Uh…you’ve read the “About” page, correct?) is to spot and identify five different mammals that frequent your backyard or neighborhood.  Domestic dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, gerbils, and the like don’t count.  I’m also thinking rats should not be counted either; if you do see those rodents lurking you might have a problem.  Go beyond spotting and work to identify those animals–use the internets, field guides, whatever helps.

Leave a post with whatever ID you’d like and give at least a general idea of your location and the identities of the mammals spotted.

I think you’ll be surprised at the biodiversity you find.
