I have never seen a raccoon here on my land or woods. I have been told that if you have skunks, you won't have raccoons. I don't know if that is true or not, but we saw this raccoon in the bird tree last night. She has been raiding the bird feeders this week by ripping them off the tree and tossing the lids away. We thought ravens (who have also been hanging around) doing that. Amy took these photos while I shone a flashlight on the raccoon. (The flashlight died after five minutes. We're so prepared for a power outage.) The poor raccoon was too skinny. The deep snow is making food gathering difficult.
