Also, on an unrelated but more naturalistic topic, a reassessment of the local raccoon population has been necessary. The night after the Hair Hen post, mama raccoon showed up with FOUR kits. It was clear that this could not be yet another litter, and also that there were not two Hairhens: it was one female who was bringing out cubs one or two at a time, as they became ready to join her nightly foragings. So, as it stands now, the count is ONE hairhen and FOUR kits. Last night they were preening and nipping each other in the fork of the big Palo Verde, making endearing snarling sounds. Too dark for photos, unfortunately.
