Earlier this week, we went out for a walk along the canal by our house. Other than this waterbird perched on a branch, we could not see much of anything in the water.
Most of the canal was covered over by thick water lettuce. So since it was almost lunch time, we decided to get some chicken and have lunch at the park.
Which was then abruptly interrupted by this guy! Five minutes after sitting down, out of the woods he came marching. Nose in the air and heading right for our table. Seems KFC is potent raccoon bait!
He had no fear at all, so I assume someone has been feeding him. Really bad idea! Dangerous for us and for him. We said our goodbyes and went home to eat our chicken in peace.
