    Those are known as cat feeders at my house - or if the cows are in the yard they are troughs for them.

    Have totally enjoyed your pictures. Thanks! They have brought back memories of some feisty raccoons who ALWAYS out smarted us and got the trash at Girl Guide camp. And more memories of summer visits to my uncle's lumber mill camp in northern Ontario. Going from the main camp back to our cabin each night was full of surprises of what is going on in the forest after dark.

    The bottom one is a raccoon. There's a smaller/lower birdbath, nearer the treeline, so I've no idea why he chose this higher one!

    I am always surprised about how resourceful the wild critters are. I recently hung two bird feeders. One is just outside the window by my kitchen table. Now I have not seen a single bird eat from it, but I have watched a very resourceful chipmunk hanging out and chowing down until most of the feed is gone. I have another feeder on the porch and I have watched another or the same little chippy trying to figure out how to get to it as it is hanging in a odd place. Still other than a couple of noisy jays, no birds...come on finches, wrens, and chickadees....the chipmunk is stealing your dinner.
    I fully expect that soon the chippy will be so well fed he will be unable to climb the porch railing, leap onto the window sill, reach the pole and brace himself between the pole and the feeder to get to his chow. Then we will call him the chubby chippy.

    I've found the birds are more likely to visit feeders, near trees or large bushes. They like to "scout" the area from the trees/bushes, before visiting the feeder.
