I forgot about the raccoon issue! It is highly not recommended to feed ANY wildlife. Of course everyone feeds the birds?? I never do because it needs to be done regularly as they get used to being fed. Not that different from humans, you know! But raccoons particularly will get used to it and will come and bang on your door if you "forget"! Most people's neighbours take exception to having lots of wild life close by. And it not good for the wildlife to become dependent. If I can find a gentle article on the subject I will share a link.
