A visit from the Normal Park Fox

I was doing some post holiday tidying around noon today when I noticed a flash of red in my periphery. I looked into my side yard and was greeted by the Normal Park Fox. I was super excited because this is only the second time I've seen a red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in the greater Ypsi-Arbor area.

Unfortunately, in the 10 seconds it took me to grab my phone, the fox had made it pretty far down my block, so these pictures aren't the best.

If you have chickens in the area, you might want to check to make sure they are secure.

  2. We used to have a fox that lived near the office here but I haven't seen it in a long time. And of course, I've never seen it when I've had my camera with me.
