Curious Visitors-Baby Raccoons!

Hello, folks! I am still running a little behind posting photos. A few days ago, actually a week ago, I went outside in the afternoon and spotted a couple of small raccoons run across the yard and climb up the old Maple tree (in the other yard, where my grandparents home was). Luckily I had my camera. I took quite a few photos and then went inside to show dad. I got into where he was sitting in his recliner in the living room and told him I had something to show him. I turned on the camera and it said I didn’t have a photo card in the camera.

SO, I put the card in and went back to take more photos.

What goes up must come down.

Once back on the ground they waisted no time to continue their exploring.

They hurriedly went across the yard toward the old foundation. I wanted to stay and watch them, but I had other things to get done. They walked to the foundation and up the stairs, walked along the wall…

Then they climbed down into the basement…

I watched them for a while then went to the chicken house.

When I came out of the chicken house they were by an Elm tree in the chicken yard (It used to be the chicken yard, anyway.).

I decided to try out taking a video…

After they played around for a while they went to the barn. We haven’t seen them since. You just never know who is going to show up here

Stay tuned for the baby rabbit, the turkeys, the tomatoes all strung up, and of course more plant photos!

I hope you enjoyed this post. Have a great day or evening depending on where you are from. Stay happy, healthy and  prosperous and GET DIRTY!

    Cute little things. But, they will be up to mischief asap. They didn’t seem afraid of you. We have raccoon visitors often with lots of trees out back. I try to not encourage them to hang around. Our next door neighbors had raccoons up in their attic space. They had to have all their insulation replaced.


    • Yes, they are cute. We have a couple of full grown Raccoons that come to the back porch at night to eat cat food. They don’t run as long as you keep the sliding door closed. Even when I open it they don’t run far then they peek around the corner to watch me to see when I will leave. They can be destructive for sure. I remember a post of yours where you were talking about the damage they did in your yard. There is something that is digging around in our yard. Don’t know what it is yet. There is also some Armadillo evidence. Thanks for the comment!

  2. They are cute – even if they can be destructive! Nice to hear them chattering on the film, and nice to hear your voice too.
    Too wet outside to get dirty today – it’s like November not the end of June here!


    • Good to hear from you! They are cute little rascals for sure! I liked hearing the funny noises they were making, too. We had a storm last night here and I am getting ready to go look at the garden. I am dreading seeing the corn blown over. Thanks for the comment!

    That must have been fun seeing these little guys!
    I think they have it pretty good in your garden, nothing beats a big old tree! Love the noises 🙂


    • This was as close to baby raccoons as I ever was, so yes, it was fun alright. I was waiting for that one to crawl up my leg but it it didn’t. I haven’t seen them since that day, though. Or heard them. Thanks for the comment! (I forgot your first name.)
