Signs of Wildlife: Raccoon footprints

The following gallery shows raccoon footprints (Procyon lotor) spotted during a photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. The new boardwalk, made of recycled synthetic materials, was installed during August- and September 2011. Photo 2 of 2 (below) shows the location where the animal climbed from the wetlands onto the boardwalk.

Raccoons are one of many species of plants and animals amateur naturalists like me can observe as part of the National Phenology Network.
