Oh Swampy, Where Are You?

The swamp has not gobbled me up, nor have I been abducted by aliens. I have just been unbelievably busy the past month. Hopefully things will ease up some and I will have an opportunity to get out and snap some swamp pictures for you. But for now I will just post this picture of a tidy little scat I found out in the swamp yesterday and pose the following question: Whose scat is that?

I'll be back to offer up the answer later.

(To my SIL - Here's something to replace the spider!)

Swampy! So nice you're back - even if it is to just drop a little scat and race off :0D

Hard to get a sense of scale here. Hmmmm . . . That's a maple tree seed, right? Hmmmmm.

OK. Wild guess: Opossum?

Heh, yeah. I did sorta drop the scat and run...

Yes, that is a maple seed there at about 4 o'clock, a tulip poplar seed at about 10 o'clock, a laurel oak leaf at 12 o'clock and some sycamore seeds scattered around. The scat is about the size of an opossum scat, but you're in the wrong group. Think avian.

Avian!? Back to the drawing board.

Turkey! (?)

Well done! Yes, it is turkey. You're on your way to becoming a top notch scatologist :)

Oh Swampy! Thank you. Happy day! I'm a poet AND well on my way to becoming an expert on poop :0D

Do drop by my blog for my mini-celebrity post. Shameless self-promotion.

Allright!
Glad you are okay, but busy.
