Red Fox Visitation

A Red Fox came trotting around the garden on the day before Christmas, then nosed up to the back of the house:

Presumably, it was in search of a snack. We wish it good hunting.

A few hours later, the fox walked quickly across the back yard with half a dozen turkey toms close behind, perhaps urging it away from their hens. Everybody remained calm and collected, knowing their roles in this particular play.

FWIW, Marist College fieldsĀ Red Foxes athletic teams. The women’s teams are Lady Red Foxes, as “vixen” carries entirely inappropriate connotations.

    Always nice to see a fox, even better when they come to see you.

      And when we can maintain a respectful distance from each other, too.
