Critters of the Night

I really don't have anything to post or report today, so I am posting a couple of photos that I have never shown before.  We have these Crows or Ravens.  I'm not sure what they are but they are as big as chickens and eat any type of stale food or leftovers that I care to put out.

At night, we also have a striped cat who comes to visit.  I don't know where he lives or if he is a feral cat.  He will not come anywhere near us so I believe he is wild, but he isn't afraid of the deer who also come to the feeder.  


 Next we have rabbits at night.  Tons and tons of rabbits.  I don't know what they eat at night.  Maybe they eat bark or sprigs of leaves that poke out of the snow.  The little pellets in the snow show me that they eat something.


We have fox, raccoon, possum and various other critters that come in the dead of night.  




The only one that I can't identify is this headless critter.  Like the abominable snowman, we will probably never know who or what it is or if it will ever show up again.
