Did you note her enlarged breast? That’s a clear sign she’s nursing little ones. I didn’t find them on this night but will soon hear them rustling in the discarded cups and ice cream bowls in the trash bins. Raccoons grow quickly so they appreciate the pizza and sugary treats thrown away by park visitors. They tour the bins each night and scatter wrappers and gooey napkins around the garbage cans while they dig for snacks.

You'll find information about the resident ducks, birds, and critters residing at the Brighton millpond. I slip in my art and poetry, but my photography of wildlife and plants is the primary focus.
All 103 pages have small "Older Entries" and "Newer Entries" links to more than 2,800 posts. Don't miss them.
