The Groundhog of White Flint


Thanks to a reader for sending:

“My husband spotted this little guy as we were awaiting the metro yesterday. The groundhog has made his burrow on the hill to the right of the sign where you can see him sitting at the entrance. He blends in a bit with the brown earth. Perhaps other readers have spotted him.”

Looks like a corpulent squirrel to me but I’m gonna take your word for it 🙂

Update: Thanks to another reader for sending a close up!

  • The groundhog has been around for at least 3 years and is often eating on the hill late afternoon/early evening. Super cute way to brighten a redline commute. I have lots of pics of it to dispute the corpulent squirrel theory.

  • I used to see the groundhogs when they moved our office out to Rockville and that was 15 years ago. Wait until next spring when the babies make an appearance. They are truly adorable.

      Yes! I was telling a colleague about this recently, as I also commuted to Shady Grove 15 years ago and this was the highlight of my metro trip. Glad to know they’re back!

  • He’s definitely a groundhog. I’ve got some pictures on my phone. A nice surprise if you waiting for the southbound red line.

  • Does that mean the metro is coming early?

  • Update. Groundhog has a friend. Just spotted two running the length of the metro tracks before they cut under the fence and continued running along the pike. I’ve never seen groundhogs run
