On the Back Porch

Photos from my son, Rob. This shot was taken a few nights ago, from the back door of his house. As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, these are descendents of raccoons we released years ago, when we had a wildlife rehabilitation center there.

The house sits on about 20 acres of woods, surrounded by suburbia. The back porch overlooks a swamp – and also happens to be where the bird feeders are. They hang from the porch rafters – sheltering the birds from winter snow and rain – and sometimes in very bad weather, seed is placed on plywood feeders on the porch floor.

Of course, the raccoons know when the bird feeders are up. And they have no shame.

    I love this picture- it looks like a family portrait, the kind where the whole family wears matching sweaters!
