I had driven to this location yesterday, on the wild chance that I might sight a very early Common Goldeneye in the opening river there. However, no Goldeneyes, but Raccoons, yes! Not one, but two, foraging in a large, open field alongside the river adjacent to the highway. They were a distance away but one seemed to notice my parked car and slunk low in the grass as if undecided as to what to do; it's body posture reminded me of a cat. At one point it turned and headed for the woods behind it in the far distance, but then following the lead of the other, changed its mind and climbing the snowbank together they then proceeded to cross the road in front of me.
