Foxes-Birds, Squirrels-May 26th-2011

This squirrel is trying to get my attention any way he can. I don't often get many aggressive ones. But he is one. This grasshopper was on the window also. I don't see them often because I'm not outdoors. I think they are neat.

This Bluejay was hot. He had to keep his mouth open a lot to get cooled.

Young Squirrels

A Tufted Titmouse and a Starling who is also hot and keeping his mouth open. I wish they'd go somewhere else. They are so noisy now with their babies following them around and crying for food all the time.

The female fox. She's looking off towards the neighbor's property as a Bluejay watches from the rock wall.

This crow was funny. He was trying to sneak over to get one of the fox treats but a squirrel was in his way. He never did get it at that time. The crows always take the fox treats. I love how they walk sideways when trying to sneak up on something. Very smart birds!

Thanks Emma. I sure do!
Samuel. The squirrels are funny but can be so destructive if they don't get their way..ha! But I do enjoy their antics.
Rain. Those squirrels never know when the fox will sneak up on them.
Steve. We are getting real warm weather this week. Too warm for me. And too humid. I always hope the birds eat in other places where there might be a bird bath or water because I can't have one for them. But I do set out a dish of water every day for the other critters and sometimes the birds will drink from it also. But the foxes never do so they must have a creek up there in those woods.
I'm still waiting to see baby foxes.

Great photos again Ginny. What a show off that Squirrel is, definitely trying to get your attention :) I agree with you about Crows, such intelligent and much maligned creatures!

What a shame about the little Chipmunk on the previous post, I had a horrible feeling you would be telling us that had happened before long... oh well, that's Nature I suppose.

It always amazes me, how quickly you go from snow to heat waves!!
