Is This Usual?

I saw a raccoon on my deck. It's been pooping on my pool cover. It's huge, kind of beautiful, looks very well fed. There are guinea fowl sleeping in the trees in my front yard (long story) so I opened my slider and yelled at the raccoon to get out. Raccoons kill guinea fowl. The raccoon was at the far end of my deck and when I yelled at. it, it came running towards me. I was in my house and could close my slider if I wanted to, so I wasn't in danger. It ran right up to me and looked at me as if I had called him to come over. I yelled at it again, it ran to the side of me to get a better look at me, and it looked straight into my eyes for a few seconds, as if it was asking me "Are you sure you're mad at me or are you my friend?" I yelled again and it ran under a chimney where I can't get to it. What is up with this raccoon? Does it have distemper or rabies? It doesn't look sick. As a matter of fact, it looks magnificently healthy and like its fur has been brushed. Is this normal raccoon behavior? Only one of my cats goes out and I don't let her out at night. Her vaccines are up to date.
