North Country explorer from Seattle, Washington
Animal Evidence/Plant Photo
I took this photo on a class trip for Natural World. There is evidence of a porcupine feeding on a beech tree. The porcupine feeds on the the tree for the nutritious outer sap and bark. I was attracted to this photo in part because of the interesting patterns the porcupine has created on the bark of the tree. The habitat here is a a mixed hardwood forest on the Raquette River.
