Groundhog Day by Find The River

FTR writes:
Underneath my birdfeeder, some sunflowers had sprouted from the black oil suflower seeds we feed birds over the winter. I was letting them (and the grass around them) grow in hopes of them flowering. Though they never got very high, it looked like a few were developing flower buds. Then Saturday afternoon, I looked out the kitchen window and saw a young woodchuck standing among them, eating each one of them right down to the ground.

After polishing off our flowers, he ran to the bushes along our backyard shed. I went to investigate, and I saw well-worn paths behind the forsythias and a small mound bulging from under the shed.

According to this Wikipedia entry:
The Groundhog (Marmota monax), also known as the Woodchuck, or the Whistlepig (particularly in the Southern United States), is a rodent of the family Sciuridae, belonging to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots.
