April 29th 2010-One Of The Pretty Gray Fox


I love watching the foxes again. This one is real pretty. In one of the photos you can see the nut on his tongue as he was getting ready to chew it. Such pretty colors when the sun shines on them just before sunset.

April 29th-Video Of Gray Fox




The collages show a few different foxes that I haven't seen since before winter. They are starting to come down before dark a lot now.
This fox is real healthy. He was taking the doggie treats and dropping them up in the bushes to get them later or take them back to the den for his mate.

Birds and Critters-April 23, 2010







I haven't seen the rat for a couple days now. I'm hoping the foxes got it. Otherwise it's probably in it's nest with babies!! Yikes!!

April 11, 2010-Chipmunk-Female Cardinal-Leaves


The female Cardinal sure looks chubby and healthy! The leaves are sprouting fast and things are starting to look greener. Not fast enough for me though.. The chipmunks are still managing to escape the female rat. At least as far as I know. I haven't seen any get bitten by her yet. When I do then that is when I will get rid of her somehow. Otherwise I'm leaving her alone for now.

April 7, 2010-More Critters-Robins-Junco-Sparrow


I couldn't help it. I had to take a picture of that cat going to the bathroom. Ha! Those two Robins seem to be a pair. They are the only ones I see every day in that same spot. Do Robins have nests in the bushes?? They always seem to be on the ground. I haven't spotted any Gold Finches yet. Or any other strange birds for that matter.

A Few Critter Collages-April 1, 2010








It was a beautiful day! Going to be 80 degrees tomorrow and Saturday!! I can't wait for everything to turn green again! The buds are slowly coming out on all the trees. The foxes are starting to come out before dark. That one in the collage was waiting there with a smile on his face. He was hoping that I'd throw him some nuts up over the rock wall like I used to, but I can't since I broke my wrist. Eventually he knew he had to come down closer if he wanted the nuts. I can talk to that one too. The Robins are around. One pair anyway. Pretty soon there will be young birds all around. I've never seen young Robins but I have seen the young Cardinals. I still have not seen a Woodchuck. But I know they are way back there in the woods somewhere. The only thing I don't like are the bugs showing up because of the warm weather. As long as they stay outside I'm happy..Ha! And as you can see, my rat is still around, eating right along with the squirrels. She was hoping to be able to get through that grate but she doesn't fit, thank heavens. The Chipmunks hide down there. Lots of hustle and bustle out there these days. I love Spring!
Have a great Easter weekend everyone!
