Young Robin outside my window

While talking om the telephone I looked out the window and saw this handsome young Robin looking in at me. Fortunately for me it stayed quite a while(long enough for me to find my camera in a hurry.) I haven't taken any pictures for quite a dew days as I am coping with a bout of sciatia :-(, and haven't been getting around much it was a real highlight to see this bird. It really gave a boost to my spirits. With the growing development of a beautiful red breast, there is no doubt that this is a young Robin.

A Raccoon Family crossing the road

While out looking for a yard sale this morning, we came upona raccoon family crossing the road.
There were three young ones if we consider that the smaller ones were this year's babies. The adult was in the lead which I would guess was the mother raccoon.They hurried across the road in front of our vehicle and all made it safely to the other side. Upon checking the side of the road that they had crossed to we saw four raccoons there together. A family we assumed!
And the picture above shows a bit of sibling togetherness!.. so sweet and cuddly looking.

But they did not stay there as the adult raccoon urged them on and the four continued on for more adventures of the day.
