Ah, another raccoon lass makes her appearance.
As you watch this, you can hear the construction on the other side of the woods.
We are seeing a greater diversity of wildlife and few individuals as of late, largely in part to the construction. There are three multi-unit (with the emphasis on “multi”) buildings now. Plus storage and community center. Parking.
Our woods were so peaceful for so many years.
We can see their lights through the trees now that most of the leaves have fallen.
And a greater diversity of The Wild come to us.
Perhaps for comfort.
Perhaps for peace.
Definitely for peanuts, cookies, and dog food.
And we are happy to give.
Because the return is too great to do without.
