Raccoons feeding in the pindo palm tree

I guess the smell of the ripened fruit in the pindo palm near the carport was too much for the raccoon family and they risked dealing with the thorny frond stalks to get at them. The fragrance of the fruit is right potent, and surely they could smell the fruit from quite a distance. It can about knock you out when you walk past the palm tree. It is supposed to be pretty tasty, but I haven't tried it myself. They don't last very long once the varmints discover that they are ripe.

The squirrels are also feeding on the fruit during the day, but they are not quite as welcome as the raccoons are around here.

Video was taken using the new Browning BTC-7A game trail camera I bought recently. Takes 1080p video at 60fps and seems to do a pretty good job.

Time to give it a try and see what you have missing out on I suppose.
Raccoons love it, they must taste great.
