Some Nature in our Yard

There were a lot of birds at the feeders this morning. One infrequent guest is a red-bellied woodpecker.
We also had a lot of finches today and some cardinals.
Emily went to check the mail and this raccoon was waiting for her. The dog went nuts, but fortunately was on a leash. She ran in to tell me and I grabbed my camera.

This guy is big--a lot bigger than that one from the chicken coop.

He kept climbing higher in the tree and swishing his tail. I couldn't tell if it was going to jump or what.

See the tail?

Oh my goodness! The cridders are coming out of the woodwork at your place today!

I've been enjoying the squirrels that I see from my new office location. :) There were at least four in my view, plaing in the leaves and running around on the grass. They eat acorns on the top of our fence gates--the wood boards are flat there. Funny creatures! Hard to get a picture, though.
