A mother skunk and two rather well grown babies stopped by this afternoon to eat seeds that had fallen out of the bird feeder. Usually skunks don't come out during the day, but the mama was obviously nursing and I'm guessing rather hungry. Tonight she came back, but with three babies this evening. Very cute!

Sue, your godson Sampson also stopped by this evening. He is growing rapidly.

Are you allergic to eggs or do you just not care for them?

Time for bed :-)


FIVE babies?!! That's quite unusual!


That has been my experience too. We had a mama with five kits one year, but 2-4 has been more typical of our urban raccoons, with fertility declining as the mama ages.

We saw a screech owl on a light post above our backyard this evening. It is the first owl I've ever seen from our backyard. Eric has heard barn owls before, but we've never caught a glimpse of one. The screech owl we saw didn't make any noise. It just sat on the light post for a few minutes, and then flew away.

Tea for me, please.

I never learned to enjoy coffee.

That mural needs a raccoon.

He's so cute! I'm honored.
(It's spelled with a p.)

Whoops! Silly me. Sorry about the spelling error.
Sampson is, indeed, a little cutie.

Possum name: Sampson
HEY! It's a good name for any animal!!!


You know what, Sue? You are absolutely right!
Samson is a good name for any animal, and an especially good name for this little fellow.
Everyone, please say hello to Samson, Sue's latest godchild!



I'll try to get Eric to take a picture of Wilfred... without getting sprayed!

All the names are delightful, and thank you, all, for your creativity.

Eric and I discussed it, and our mutual favorite entry is Wilfred. If Wilfred turns out to be a girl, we will change over to Wilfrieda.

We photographed a baby possum last night, so we will need another name.

I'll see if I can get Eric to send me a link to the photo.

A friend just pm'd me with the suggestion of Wilfred, so I will post it here with the other suggestions.

Hard to tell if skunks are male or female, unless little ones are trailing behind. Skunks don't stand up on their hind legs like raccoons.

We have a new skunk visitor to our backyard. He/she??? is small, seems young, and has an exceptionally grand tail.
A better looking skunk I cannot imagine.

Name suggestions?
