May 1, 2011-Young Squirrels, Fox, Mourning Dove

The oldest female Gray Fox. She always comes right down in the yard and come most every day around 3:30.

Hang on there little squirrel!

Baby squirrels are so cute! But I do worry about them because they aren't as attentive to danger as their mom is. I'm sure the foxes will get a few. Or even a hawk. Just hope I never see it. And I hope they don't get all those bumps on them like the young ones did two years ago. That was awful to see and so sad.

He's so cute. I think they must be around 3 months old. Maybe more. But they do leave at around 12 weeks old and go on their own but I think they still go back to the nest till they are around six months old.

A big "awwww". They are so cute. Babies in the spring renew promises of good things to come.

Great shots, you must be having some bad wind for that mom to have to repair the nest so much.
