Visitors by night.
For quite some time now,
we have been having visitors during the night.
Our bird feeders have been vandalized.
Suet cakes disappear.
Bird houses torn down.
Huey barking....barking….barking.
Finally….the mystery has been solved.
Late one night, we were sitting on the porch.
Huey began barking at something.
I ran for my camera and turned on the outside light.
I ran outside to where Huey was.
Huey was looking up….
I looked up.
I snapped a few pictures,
hoping they would take in the darkness.
Can you see it?
It was a BIG one this time.
Maybe the daddy or mommy
of the one that was on the porch before.
It was sitting way up there on our old TV antenna.

I’m sure it was in the bird feeder that is beside
the antenna pole.
Huey saw it and it jumped over to the pole
and climbed up to the antenna.

Another exciting evening.

Oh, you did take pictures!
Poor thing, I'll bet it was scared to death. Dog barking, lights flashing....
Great shot, Shirley!

Hmmm, the masked bandits have made a new appearance! Goodness I am glad they all didn't decided to camp out in your antenna. If your reception starts to mess up you will know who is to blame. :)

That racoon looks real healthy, must be all that free food he has been getting at your house.lol They are the most annoying animals,I think they will eat anything, and so sneaky too. lol. Our dogs have been barking at night and there probably are some running amuck around here.Thank you for visiting, and for leaving such sweet words of encouragement.
Thank you for sharing this cute story.
