The fox was back and, boy, did it provide some photo opps. I saw it trotting along the trail behind my house again and watched it through the open windows of my sunroom. It paused briefly to look up at me, then continued a short way (about 30 feet) down the trail. It stopped for several seconds along the trail. At the time, I was simply taking photos and didn’t realize what it was doing.
Here’s where I should warn you that the story takes a bit of a gruesome turn, so stop here if the death of little critters upsets you. … You’ve been warned and, remember, it’s only nature running its natural course. (I’ll even add a ‘continue reading’ break here.) Continue reading →
As you can tell, this post is mislabeled as it’s not a bird at all. I’ve been seeing for the past few weeks a fox run along the trail that runs behind my backyard (I’m assuming it’s the same fox.)

(Repeat text for context: I’m running out of COVID-19 lockdown themes so from now until things get back to some semblance of normalcy, I will simply post my best photo from the previous day. You could say it fits because of its uncertainty and challenge. I’ll call the series “A Day on Merganser Lake,” even though that’s not the real name of the lake I live near in southwestern Connecticut, it’s just a nod to my favorite duck family.)
