DEFINITELY OFF OUR FEED – Marilyn Armstrong

The pictures from last night look just like the pictures from the day before. Apparently every night, a conga line of raccoons take over the back deck. You can see the flying squirrels, but they seem to glide in from the woods and they don’t trigger the motion sensor because they are behind the feeder and post. I saw one last night, but by examining the timestamps, he (and probably his family) were there for a couple of hours. But they are hard to see.


If you look at the top of the pole in the first picture, it’s flat. Look at the second one. Ah! There’s the flying squirrel on top of the pole. They are gliding in from the back, so they don’t trigger the motion sensor.

To make up for that, I got some nice bird pictures today. Both Garry and I aren’t feeling well. Not coronavirus but very likely sinus infections. Our doctor has learned that if one of us has something, the other of us has it too, so we have two prescriptions of everything and I hope it works quickly. I’ve had a headache for a week and laryngitis for even more weeks. All I really want to do is sleep.

  1. Well, it’s a bit fuzzy…. but hey, flying squirrel! I’d like to see them try a conga line, but being gliders, they’d probably be more the ballet type…

  3. Sinus infections are the worse. Ugh. My husband also spends a fortune keeping the critters happy.

    • Sinus infections hurt. It’s the headache that gets you.

      We ARE spending a fortune feeding creatures. The last time we let a feeder run empty, the raccoons destroyed it. I’m sure they would joyfully do it again if they had a chance.

  4. I hope you both feel better very soon. I love the little visitors, gotta say. Our yard is ruled by them, so I just live to serve them all kinds of seeds and a big castiron pan of water, and we get along fine.

  5. You’ll never keep up with those racoons, Marilyn. They eat you out of house and home.

  6. Oh so sorry for the sinus infection…like you don’t already have enough to deal with physically!

    I love the image of a conga line of raccoons. In conjured up a whole potential Pixar scene in my mind…
