Yesterday morning, I went out with my camera to see if I could spot "Rocky".
Can you see him?
How about now?
Hmmmmm, I think this might be "Roberta" not "Rocky" raccoon. Do you see an extra little nose?
Mama saw me getting closer, and pushed the baby's head down with her paw.
After work, I grabbed my camera and crept slowly to the tree in hopes of spotting the baby again.
Instead, I saw this!
You can tell from this photo that she's a nursing mama! And hey ~she grew her tail back!
After dinner, I went back to check on her.
And saw this:
Funny, if I had never seen her hanging out of the tree like Winnie the Pooh looking for honey, I never would've noticed her at all! She really camouflages herself well, plus she's really high up.
This tree is outside our fence line, so no worries about run ins with the dogs.
