Woodchuck, Whistlepig, Groundhog (Marmota monax)

  1. Hi Mark! I enjoyed your photos of the woodchuck because I had never seen one. At first I thought I was looking at a yellow-bellied marmot which I have seen a number of times above the timberline here in Colorado. And heard whistling many more times. I didn't realize they were closely related species. Live and learn! Great music! I've played the first cut several times. I think about all the miners who had little choice but to go down into the mines to put food on the table. It's a thrill to go underground in a mine which I've done a number of times, but I would never want to work there. At least I had a choice. Neil Young is spot on! Have a good one!
