A few weeks ago I went out to the chicken coop at dusk and was shocked to find a little opossum sitting in the compost bin. He was just sitting there. Cute little rat like thing. I looked them up online and they are supposed to be transient, and not too much of a problem.
Then we’d be watching TV in day and at night and he’d be back, walking along the windows in the only area without snow. Poor little dude. Looking for food I guess. A few times I didn’t have a camera, but finally I snapped him out the window.
Then yesterday he was back. I went back to the internet and it said that they are seen more often in the day in the winter when they’re starving. Poor guy. He found a rotten potato that we’d left out by the door. He’s kind of slow on his feet and he went behind the woodpile where I snapped a few more shots. And got this good one…
Last year we had the turkey man who was hanging about, and this year this seems to be our guest.
