Cleaning up

Tiny pink feet and toes walking through the February snow; this opossum was taking advantage of warm temperatures and was hunting food well before dark the other day at Coffee Creek.

Rabbits are having a hard time at Coffee Creek lately. Something seems to be killing them off, leaving little scraps of fur and entrails which this opossum was cleaning up. I can only speculate what is doing the dirty deed to the rabbits; could be an owl feeding babies this time of the year.

Opossums rarely stay in an area very long so I have no hope of seeing this guy again. Opossums are the wanderers of the animal world.
