These are some saucy little characters! I have lived in this house for 10 years and this is the first time that I have seen a raccoon here! And he was not shy. He was only a few feet from the back door on my deck.
As you can see, bird suet is the meal du jour. These guys have to get marks for their ingenuity. I keep a metal trash can on my deck which normally houses only bird seed but on this one occasion it appears that I tossed a suet block in the bin. Won't be doing that again!
So far this summer is shaping up to be the summer of critters.
