I was out watering, and spotted a spotted moth. It is quite interesting. 

Eight-spotted Forester Moth 
(Alypia octomaculata)
hermit thrush

I taped the song, followed it about in the forest. I'm pretty sure that is it, from All About Birds. I've photographed them in the forest.

Cinnamon had a visit with Butch. He was hauled indoors after this. Cinnamon, not Butch.


We were reading on the back deck when I heard screaming sound. It was Cinnamon and a raccoon kit screaming at Cin.
Again, I hauled him indoors. There were five babies in total!


We had a debate about what to do, as I couldn't see mom. JB grabbed Nutmeg and threw HER in the house. I watched them for a bit. They were having a ball. Then, at the end of the video, she suddenly turned up. Peering at me from over the wee fence. 


Tom said... that a good moth?

That Cinnamon is quite the intrepid explorer.

Love nature. Unfortunately we have had a couple of racoons hit by vehicles the past couple of nights.

Exciting times but I don't like raccoons hanging around our place so much. They tend to make messes in the barn and steal bird food.
