New Hampshire Nature Notes

New Hampshire's Seven Sleepers are sleeping this winter away. (VIDEO)
While we may struggle on these cold wintery days with snow, ice and winter winds there are seven New Hampshire animals that are missing most of the winter weather by sleeping through it! Yes our Seven Sleepers are napping right now. We have three true hibernators in bats, woodchucks and meadow jumping mice. Then the four lighter sleepers like bears, chipmunks, skunks and raccoons. They may wake on warmer days for a look-see and are far more aware of their environment through the winter.
New Hampshire fish and wildlife changed in many ways in the last decade. (VIDEO)
Turkeys were back in big numbers since we got snow last week.
