I have been a park ranger with North Carolina State Parks since 1991. I enjoy hiking in the woods and enjoying nature. I am also a potter and try to weave nature into my pottery themes.
raccoon dangling in a tree to sleep

Just Waking Up From My NapRaccoons are nocturnal animals meaning they are active at night and sleep during the day. But where do raccoons sleep during the day? Well I got my answer the other day. I looked up into the tree above my back deck one morning and saw this raccoon lying on a limb.

Little ToadI found this little hopper while walking on a trail in the park. I am pretty sure it is a southern toad. It is hard to tell when they are this young. This little toad is a newly metamorphosed toadlet and will have to wait 2 to 3 years before it can reproduce and start the process over again.

A Nest Full of Sleeping BeautiesWhile checking my bluebird houses, to my surprise I found five little babies sleeping. I am sure Mommy and Daddy Bluebird will be busy keeping these little mouths full.
