July: a wild month

Baby raccoons

July has been an extraordinary month for local wildlife. Within walking distance of our core homestead, we've seen:

  • A juvenile black bear near our neighbor's mailbox
  • A black coyote on top of a round haybale that jumped down to join its more normally colored partner
  • Masses of turkeys, including a mother with twelve offspring that seemed to whittle down to about seven over the course of three weeks...unless that was a different family
  • These two baby raccoons by the same neighbor's mailbox
  • And --- the kicker --- massive bear tracks near where we park our vehicles that were longer than my own barefoot tracks

What surprises will August bring?
