Portia had been hesitant to go to the back corner of our yard without one of us with her. She likes going there to check out the neighbor's yard. We were out one evening with her and saw the source of her concern. These characters were up a tree just over the fence. She had been smelling and hearing them I guess.
Actually, there were three of them. People down the street feed these guys which is a terrible idea. But, they don't try to raid my bird feeders like they used to do.
