Still Hanging Around

The night that I watched 5 raccoons trying to all climb our platform feeder at once was the night we decided to stop refilling that buffet. Their hog-like grunting was just a bit creepy and they were coming right up by our new porch. I have previously written of our need to keep our garbage cans closed with bungee cord to keep them out. And these strategies have seemed successful.

Last Saturday morning, I sat out on the porch and watched as a single adult raccoon walked/climbed head-first down an oak, from somewhere really high up. It sat/sprawled in a fork in the tree and groomed/scratched for some time.

After a while, it went out on a limb, so to speak.

From there, it finally seemed aware of me.
