Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
Well today I can add blue jays to my list. There were 3 of them in a bush in the yard. My son noticed them. Then he noticed the little fox that was taking a nap under the bush! It stayed for about half an hour.

We live in a suburban area, a block from a major intersection, but with a creek and a park about a mile away. I'm wondering why we're seeing so much more winter wildlife than usual. We have two young raccoons in our attic, too.... UGH. I have to have a medical procedure Monday but ... Soon as it's done we are going to put raccoon trapping at the top of our priority list. They are probably siblings and I'm hoping they can be released together some place far far away from here. Then we'll have the problem of cleanup which is a much bigger challenge. (I think. I'm hoping raccoons will be tempted to get into a humane trap if it's baited with hot dogs or bacon. We're probably going to have to get professional help with this....)
