October 20, 2010-Fall-Foxes-Birds

The sun was behind the tree and this squirrel was enjoying a nut and the sunny day.

The squirrel's nest close up and from a distance. If you look close you will see a squirrel upside down on the left side of his nest. He was fixing it so I guess maybe there will be some activity there all winter. I thought it was abandoned at first.

A squirrel was on top of the rock wall watching the fox and waiting for it to leave, hoping the fox wasn't going to eat every nut.

This is what the trees look like out here. You can see how bare it has gotten around that nest. Can you see the squirrel on the branch amongst the leaves?

This is my pretty older female Gray Fox. I hope she stays safe for another year. She's been around here for a few years now.

This Chipmunk is keeping watch on where the fox goes.

And finally some of the birds I saw this day.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the photos here and on the previous post Ginny. Love the little Chipmunk and all the birds. Your little Black-capped Chickadee looks a lot like our Marsh Tit.

Those Skunks make me laugh every time I see them :)

I enjoyed learning about the squirrel's nest. Super photos of your birds and usual!

Your fox is a vegetarian?

Gray Foxes will eat nuts and berries also but I'm sure they are catching their share of mice, rabbits and Voles or whatever they can. They look real healthy and I'm sure they don't get that healthy on just nuts..Ha! Thanks Rain and Jean and Jan.
