    This morning while my husband was filling the bird feeders, he thought he saw a visiting cat. He went to shoo it away and this is what he saw:

    Yes, we have a grey fox in the neighborhood! Yesterday morning there was a doe by the hanging bird feeder, right next to the backyard fence. We're thinking of applying for wildlife refuge status and charging admission (to humans, not four-footed critters).

    What a lovely pic of that illusive fox. It is a lovely animal actually.
    Good luck with your economic adventure. ;)

    Sjoerd, not such a lovely animal when it growls at you! My practical husband grabbed our calico cat (who is NOT practical) and beat a retreat to the porch.
    I"m all for having fox in the area, just not in the back yard!

    Lovely photo ... I've never seen a grey fox, we only have the red ones. I love the foxes, but I probably wouldn't if I had cats or chickens outside!

    So, cute. They hunt mice, rabits and feed on dead corpses. They are called doctors in nature.
