The Letter “P X 3” – Can you name the “P” creatures? The first “P” has chewed the bark off of at least 57 Red Pine tress in a small area of the Alton Grange. Interesting that numerous Hemlock and scattered deciduous saplings were untouched except for one sapling. The second “P” was calling throughout the Hockley Valley Nature Preserve. This very large excavation was found this past Monday before the snow arrived. The third “P” at least 36 of them took over our bird feeders once the temperatures dropped accompanied by the falling snow.
