April 17, 2011-Squirrels-Chickadee-Foxes-Skunk

The nest has survived our heavy winds these past two days.

A squirrel hanging upside down because of danger. They run up the tree then turn around like this so they can watch where the enemy is. And bark at them..

Black Capped Chickadee

The Gray Fox Mates were both out there again tonight. It's so hard to get a photo of them together. The female grabs the food and takes it into the woods then comes back. Then the male does it. Hoarding food for later and for the pups.

This skunk was begging again...ha ha !

I tried to get a good shot of a red fox with you in mind yesterday, but he kept running away.

Thank you Emma.
I hope you do get that picture of the fox soon. They are such awesome creatures. I never see red ones. Just once I saw one out in the field as I was riding through the country. Oh! I did see two baby ones when I was a kid. My father had caught them and he had them in a shed. He let them go eventually though. They were so cute.

Thanks Wild Bill. I am very blessed for sure.
Those Squirrels have very sharp claws Rain... It is amazing how they climb and jump.
Thanks Samuel. The foxes are my favorite!!
