Raccoon alert

Raccoon foraging for sunflower seeds

Nothing says summer like heat waves, thunderstorms, and raccoons tearing up the bird feeders at night. Between the raccoons and the squirrels, that feeder takes a beating. And after the hordes of sparrows are done, it’s a wonder that there’s ever anything left for the blue jays and cardinals. There will be, for a little while, after I fill it in the morning.
