Photo Friday: Reading Raccoon

Recently I posted about our new motion-activated camera that takes photos of wildlife in our backyard. We’ve been getting foxes and raccoons every night, and sometimes during the day as well. Last week’s Photo Friday featured a fox exploring the yard. The raccoons demanded equal time, so this week’s photo shows a raccoon that stopped by between 1:30 and 2:00 am a few night ago to investigate our Bird Library. Perhaps it planned to check out a book. A few minutes later, the camera caught Rocky and another raccoon walking together back into the trees.

The raccoon that climbed up to our library-themed bird feeder showed little interest in the bird seed that filled the librarian’s desk. Rocky probably smelled the residue of suet on the suet cage hanging on the side of the library. Disappointingly for the racoon, the cage was empty that night.
