June 29th-2012-Fox-Cardinal-Turkeys

I've been watching for the fawns to come back out but I haven't seen them since the 24th. The doe comes out alone every day though. And yesterday I was told that there are two does. I think maybe they each have a fawn and one watches them while the other goes foraging. Tamara, who lives next door thinks that one doe might have twins and the other has one. I guess I'll just have to wait and see if I see them all together. That would be awesome. I missed the two does yesterday. Wanda saw them from her window upstairs but she said something spooked them and they ran.
I also was told last evening that a baby fox has finally appeared up on the back hill!! It was out of my viewing area though so now I will have to wait till they start roaming further. I can't wait! Meanwhile here's some pics from this past week.

 This female skunk is te friendly one from last year. I think she has babies in the woods. She takes a treat and runs back home with it. She did that last year too just before she brought her babies down.
 My favorite daddy fox. He waits for me each morning now.

 Red squirrel keeping safe from the fox.
 A beautiful male cardinal. I see him feeding a young female all the time.
Turkeys! First ones I've seen in ages.

It is good to have a daddy fox waiting for you.

Just like having a pet fox.

Real nice Ginny, I like that you see that skunk as friendly.

It's always a pleasure to see your animals. I never thought I'd ever see many turkeys either, but they are common where I live now.
