Raccoons eat mussels?

I've blogged before about the surprising variety of wildlife around our marina here in Stamford, Connecticut, including Rocky the Raccoon.

He comes out most evenings about a half hour before sunset and searches along the shore for mussels.   I have no idea how he gets them open.

Update on the Canada Geese- the kids are getting big, probably teenagers now.   They'll need feathers if they intend to fly south for the winter.  Like their parents though, they may make Stamford their year round home.  If so, in a few years there won't be any room for boats here.   The place will be full of Geese.

I'm a little concerned about the Thunderbird.  The marina is paving the parking lot and we have to park on the  lawn for a few days.  I hope Rocky doesn't decide to make himself a new home.
