They're back!, : Raccoons

This is not good picture quality but, it was still dark out when I saw the familiar rounded back shape silhouetted on a table where I had placed a pile of bird food yesterday in hopes of enticing a few birds to drop by thus activating my recently purchased bird cam which I am experimenting with. I have made a lot of errors with my bird cam, YesterdayI had not secured the scan disc memory card in tightly and so it was empty and I had watched a lot of birds visiting my food table too, including a pair of Purple finches. ( How disappointed I was) Oh well, hopefully I won't make any more mistakes today. However yesterday I did have a few pictures on the internal memory of the bird cam and I was very pleased with the clarity and colour of the pictures the birdcam captured like this Blue Jay picture shown below. The Raccoon viewed the pile of bird food as an early morning invitation to breakfast I guess.

Raccoons are such a nuisance! I know they have to eat, too, but they tear down my feeders and make a big mess for me to clean up. Your bird cam looks like it takes really great photos! I know you will have a lot of fun with it.
