A Feast Of Birch Bark

A little group of porcupines has entertained nature-watchers along Carling Avenue for the last few weeks, eating one of their favorite winter foods, birch bark. The peeling outer layer of birch bark allows them easy access to the inner bark, which is the part they savor. View the first photo at high res to see where patches of bark have been nibbled away.

The light on the porcupine is gorgeous. Would love to find some mammals to photograph this winter.
