Today's post is a continuation of a story I started on the 15th. I introduced you to our new pet. This porcupine has visited every night for over a week now. Porcupines are a nocturnal rodent. They eat plants and tree bark. Our porcupine has a taste for bird seed.
We finally named him - Quillliam Penn. If we discover somehow that Quilliam is a female, we'll modify it to Quilla. Quilliam was almost named Quilliam Shake-a-spear but we decided on Quilliam Penn instead.
Last night Quilliam learned a new trick. He climbed up the 5 steps to our deck to reach the bird seed that we put there. Quilliam doesn't mind flash photography so I'm sharing a nice portrait of him.
