The visitor returns...

July 13th, 2011 at 03:32 am

Was up early again and around 6:15 a.m. I spotted the gray fox I'd seen a few weeks earlier. This time, he/she was trotting briskly through the front yard. I was surprised it turned down the driveway and into the road. From there, I lost sight of it and couldn't see where it went. I wonder if it's a young male scouting for a new territory.

It's still pretty exciting and amazing to me that even after 15 years of living here I can still be surprised by the wildlife I see here.

I live just 3/4 of a mile from the historic center of town but it's still a pretty woodsy area behind me. There have been fairly regular sightings of black bear and bobcats in town, too (photos in the local newspaper), but I have yet to see those!

    WE now have a raccoon that visits several times a week, along with many groundhogs and deer. A bear has visited a few times too.

    That's neat! I'd be pretty excited about spotting a fox.

    I like your new avatar, it's pretty!
