Raccoon ready for Spring [video]
This morning at precisely 1:48 A.M. EDT, the Sun crossed directly over the Earth’s equator and became the Northern Hemisphere’s vernal equinox. This equinox is a great time for looking for animals because the ground is thawing and critters are out searching for food.
The Raccoon captured in this post were found searching for grubs the other night when I had hoped to find some American Woodcock displaying (but didn’t find any). I watched it for almost an hour near dusk and only on a few occasions did it actually look up at my vehicle. It worked the field by moving in transects, as to be sure to cover almost every inch of the area for anything worth eating. I just loved watching it use its little nose and front paws feeling for things (as you can see in the video). You always knew it would find food when it quickly started chewing something and then you would find me with a big smile on my face! Did I mention that spring is one of my favorite times of the year and soon our warblers will be returning!!! SWEET . . . . winter is over (well it is almost over)!
