Look Who Came to Visit

Joe has some bird feeders hanging close enough to his window that he can take photos of his visitors. This is a frequent one:

Joe has quite an impressive collection of birds’ photos on these feeders and I may use them to decorate some future posts,  but today I want to tell you about a different visitor.

A few mornings ago Joe noticed that the level of grains in the feeders went down dramatically during the night and we saw some seeds spread on the ground under them. Joe suspected one of the animals who frequent the back yard but tonight Sam caught the visitor in action and Joe managed to catch him on camera:

The raccoon decided to climb to our balcony Saki's way!

He was very brazen:

Oh well maybe I can get to it from here,,,

He wasn’t bother by the flash light shining on him:

I will get to these seeds no matter what!

Going down the pole

or the camera:

See what a lovely manicure I got!

I think it is a good thing we kept Saki away don’t you agree?

    That is quite the visitor! They are so smart and very brazen!! The cardinal is so beautiful. In Utah our birds are not so bright. Thanks for sharing that beautiful shot.

    Oh, yes! Raccoons are strong and they can be mean. I love watching them, but i wouldn’t mess with one! I love the picture of the cardinal — that’s not a bird that we get at all out here, and they’re so beautiful.

    What great pictures – I know that the raccoon isn’t a welcome visitor but I love the pictures – such a brat!

    Wonderful photos! I love cardinals. But those darn raccoons! They are persistent, sneaky, and always hungry! (Cute, too. . .) I found a chipmunk sitting in the middle of my bird feeder this morning. I think squirrels, chipmunks, and raccoons must be part monkey. . .
