Look who's visiting the TUVU nest tree!

TUVU is the scientific acronym for Turkey Vulture.  Remember the tree from the last post?  Well, that tree has been a successful Turkey Vulture nest in years' past, but look who is living in the tree now.   Several photos captured this raccoon leaving (at dusk) and entering the tree (at dawn) which tells us that this critter is using the tree for daytime sleeping.  TUVUs have actually looked into this tree cavity this year, so will they attempt to nest there?
