A Newcomer at my door
I had a new visitor last night. A very big, healthy, male raccoon. He was extremely wary of me and it took almost two hours of hide and seek, (and feeding little bits of kibble) - before I was able to grab a couple of photos. By now he might be somewhat used to me, and may become more trusting. However if the friendly female regulars are raising any kits nearby they may drive him away - in spite of his size. If he returns we will have to find a name. Suggestions always welcome!
I’m waiting to see if the little skunk becomes a regular before giving him or her a name.
