As the day dragged on the temperature began to fall. The young Raccoons cuddled together perhaps in an attempt to stay warm.
I don’t know why the Raccoons decided to spend the day in my small maple tree instead of in a snug den somewhere. I continued to check throughout the evening with my last check at 10PM. At that time one raccoon had descended until it was only about four feet above the ground while the other raccoon was still perched near the top where they had spent the day. I checked again at 5AM and they were gone.
