Big Fat Bandit
We have a huge VERY well-fed raccoon in the back yard today. I grew up where we were surrounded by wildlife and I miss it. Here in Ypsilanti (a city near Detroit) the sightings have been few and far between. I spotted an opossum a few years back, and the first summer we were here, a red-tailed hawk stooped and enjoyed a meal of pigeon in the back yard. The raccoon is the first 'wild' life I've seen in a long time except for my usual bird pals. I enjoyed watching him waddle around the back yard :-} Oscar isn't as pleased, being the more sensible of the two of us where critters are concerned.
