Raccoon – 8/20/16

Observer: Richard Mandell

Observation Date: 8/20/2016

Observation Time: 2:00 p.m.

Observation Location: Mountain Street

Common Name: Raccoon

Scientific Name: Procyon lotor

Comments: Unusual to see out during the day, as raccoons are mainly nocturnal. Probably looking for the bird feeders, which I now take in at night since raccoons plundered them at night. Check out the nighttime photo I took of a raccoon trying to get sugar water from our hummingbird feeder. It’s posted at this site.
