The new backyard residents

The area of our backyard shown in the above has become a focus of activity of late, first by Bodie wading into the growth sniffing out something-or-other, then by the scurrying of some smallish animals (that I took to be mice) into the crevasses of the railway tie that is there (on the right), as well as the corners of the shed (on the far left) which sported some previously undisclosed openings into its underpinnings.

It wasn't just mice. Unperturbed by my presence, this afternoon I spotted a somewhat larger intruder, lazily munching away at some item in the (left) grassy area:

I am wondering now if the opossum that I thought I saw back in June was misidentified.
