Our neighborhood raccoon has become quite a connoisseur of suet.
Fruit and nut flavor.
Berry infused high energy.
Raccoon has tried them all.
In fact, Raccoon can eat an entire 11 oz block of suet in one evening.Raccoon illustration only. This is not the actual thief.
Racoon's nightly adventures on the deck involve transgressing a series of birdfeeders to get to his beloved rendered fat.
Shimmy past the pepper infused seed. Negotiate around the peanut feeder. Avoid the birdbath. In the midst of bird heaven, exists our Wingscapes Birdcam. Raccoon cares not about Birdcam. As he waddles toward his lard dinner, he pushes BirdCam off the deck where it hangs by bungee cords slamming against the deck railing.
But, BirdCam can take a beating. Along with the all the other great features of this cool device, BirdCam was meant to last.
Raccoon broke the deck railings on his last visit, but not BirdCam.
The following day, as BirdCam lay on its back, it produced some interesting pictures and perhaps some new ideas to use our coolest toy.
If Raccoon develops a taste for the spicy stuff, we have either fattened him up for a Great Horned Owl, or we have contributed to the obesity epidemic in the raccoon population.
