So far this season, the only baby birds we’ve seen were starlings (first) and then grackles (this evening). All the other must be nest bound… or their parents have warned them about all the savory characters at Jim’s Fly-thru Buffet.
Shortly after midnight last night I watched a red fox trot down the street (after leaving my driveway). It went diagonally down the hill from one sidewalk to the other, zig-zagging all the way down to the river. Then the Canada geese all started honking away. Some flew off over the river making a wide circle before returning. Some geese remained and honked non-stop until the fox left. Aside from the fox and someone’s pet cat heading home, nothing stirred before I retired for the night (1:45 AM). I guess it’s going to be a little while longer before the doe bring their fawns down here.
