Much more wildlife this year...

After 3 years of planting, planting, planting, we are starting to see an influx of new wildlife this summer. We have seen our first immature downy woodpecker, an immature nuthatch, a chipmunk... in addition to the squirrels, and all of the birds who frequent the feeders already (goldfinches being my favorite).

But I had wanted to share the cutest, fuzziest new babies around here so far this year...
I found them while cleaning up forget-me-not foliage from our spring froth in the Front Woodland, which is surrounded on all sides by road and sidewalk.
Once they were hoping around away from their mother with eyes wide, they took a trip to a meadow by a stream.  (There was a whole trying-to-catch-their-mama saga that occurred, to no success.) Hoping they are enjoying a little more safe space, away from the roads.
