We have been having a nightly visiter eating out of our bird feeder. A big racoon. One night we had two at the same time. They sure are fun to watch! They don't even get frightened when we turn on the lights. Probably not a good thing I know, but it is getting close to winter and they should be going into hybernation soon.

Don't feed them. I repeat. DON'T. These animals can quickly become pests as they become more familiar with your place. They will get into places that you wish they wouldn't, and as wild animals miust be captured and moved to control the problem, Yes they are cute, but when they move in under your porch and start feasting on your waste or pets, they won't seem so cute.

Remember, never feed a wild animal.

Guess I should start taking in the bird feeder every night. Well at least the ones I can. I can't take one of them in. Won't be long and he will be hybernating so no worry.

I read too that bird feeders are loaded with salmonella, so clean them frequently. Don't feed birds bread either. It is no good for them. Stick to seeds etc.

Yes I guess it's getting colder fast in Minnesota. Hope they don't set up camp under the front step. They are cute though.
