Vermont Wildlife

#VT – Front Porch Forum is choke full of unusual wildlife sightings this weekend…

  • Mama bear and cubs in the South End of Burlington
  • Porcupine near Five Corners in Essex Junction
  • Loads of hummingbirds all over
  • And turtles on the roads near Lake Iroquois, including this note just posted by Kathleen…

I moved a little turtle today, too, about the size of a baseball. She and I worked together, with the help of an envelope I had, to encourage her to move. I was surprised by the noise her feet made when she literally RAN to the side of the road.  I had no idea that turtles could RUN. They can.

  1. I helped a large snapper cross the road in Middlebury, by the Pulp Mill Bridge. I was amazed at how fast he ran. He was about the size of a car tire rim.
