The raccoons are back in town. Kurt and I set the trail cameras further in the back of our cabin. See the previous post. The trail for the raccoons is very narrow and we had to crawl under a large fallen tree. Glad we did that! The raccoons here are very shy and difficult to capture on video. Also, see the previous post from February of raccoon on the trail camera here. Enjoy!
Hi Friends, Here is a family of raccoons that come and visit at night. My trail camera captured these cuties sneaking around the back of the woods. It was a rainy day in February, but the late-night munchies did not stop these from raccoons searching around for a snack. Now, given this situation…I can relate! 😆 Warm Regards, Debra
According to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), raccoons are monogamous and breed primarily in late winter (January and February) after their first or second year. Following a gestation period of approximately 2 months, females give birth in April or May to a litter of two to four pups in a hollow den tree. Female raccoons wean their young at 16 weeks and continue to care for them for approximately 9 months. Raccoons inhabit most of the United States, including all of South Carolina, with population densities being higher along coastal areas than inland.
I have been busy reviewing all my tail camera footage and found a white squirrel that hangs in the back of my cabin. I had posted previously another video of this cutie… you can click the underlined link to view it here.
Also, I will be adding new trail cameras within a few weeks to capture more wildlife. So stay tuned!
Warm Wishes, Debra Roinestad

This teenage buck was so curious of the trail camera. He came so close… I guess he is proud of his large horns.

Note: Hi Friends, there’s a snowstorm coming this way to upstate South Carolina. I’ll post images and videos of the event. I might lose power/internet tonight due to the severe snowstorm. I’ll be safe…lots of love. ~Debra Roinestad 🍃
In the meantime, here are cute videos of the wildlife-deer, fawn, and crows that were on the trail camera back in June.
