Quickly adding four photos taken yesterday, 19 January 2021, when I went for a walk in Fish Creek Park with several birding friends. Not spectacular photos, but I wanted to post them just for the record that I actually went on a walk.

I knew that there was a Porcupine somewhere in the area and I was delighted that someone spotted it higher up than I have ever seen a Porcupine. I certainly can't take credit for the find.
Amazing that this funny little creature would slowly make its way up such a very tall tree. It didn't move while we were there, so presumably it was fast asleep.

■The common porcupine is a large, robust rodent. Adults weigh about 10 kilograms (22 pounds).
■Has a thick tail, and short powerful legs with long curved claws.
■Coat is composed of rows of dense, brown undercoat with yellow-tipped guard hairs.
■Guard hairs alternate with rows of loosely attached quills that vary from 25 to 65 millimetres (1 to 2.5 inches) in length.
■Quills taper to a sharp and stiff point that is covered with very small barbs.
■Quills are hollow, thus reducing their weight and providing buoyancy when the animal occasionally swims.
