Thank you!
A new one for me. Amazing how many new critters I find in a very small range from my house. I'm glad I have you guys to tell me what they are.

It might be something in that neighborhood, at any rate. Wait to see what the experts have to say.

 
It certainly does
and it's in the right state - thanks for the direction.
