Lately we’ve been hearing some noisy chittering in the back yard, and these are the adorable bandits making a ruckus. We’ve got 3 baby raccoons and their mama (we’re assuming) and they’re using one of our trees as their highway to go places.

Today, some of the babies were climbing around on the tree and tussling near the bushes. Mama raccoon tried to rush them off to wherever their final destination was going to be and one little guy sadly hung on for dear life to one of the tree branches, screeching for help before falling off. Little dude was okay though, and everybody came up to the pond to do some hand washing.
