Sighting Record 1277771

Observation Notes: 
This cool guy was on the underside of the roof fascia on our deck. He hung out for a couple of days I think. He started shedding his fuzzies and left them in a pile (also pictured) I don’t see anyone inside the pile so I think he is gone. Why did he shed the fuzzies and pile them up? Very interesting!
