Anatomy of a raid, raccoon style!

1. Check to make sure there are no pesky hoomanz in the blind.

2. Find the kids a snack...

3. ...and once they're busy, park 'em somewhere nearby where you can watch 'em.

Time to think about the last step of any raid: the escape!

Pretty soon they'll figure out how to tip the platform & just dump the seeds on the ground

My mum has a water dish out in her yard for the crows/little birds/squirrels and the raccoons or possibly the odd skunk coming at night have occasionally dumped the whole metal bowl upside down & right off the tree stump
