Last year it was a fox I photographed from my living room window. This winter is was a raccoon. The day before I noticed prints in the snow on the patio and then it discovered the bird feeder. Nice try, bud.
Eventually it went all the way up another tree to the right of this one. It’s a little patch behind the other garage. It was probably 50 feet up. I never knew they’d climb so high. I have a couple of videos of it climbing and then getting itself situated. I’ll have to process and post them somewhere. After a while it came down and ambled off into the next lot. Funny little critter.
