While I'm preparing this post, there is one awful struggle going on at the feeders outside my window, rather like West Side story with a three way battle between Huegy, our crow, the Grackles and Huegy's cousin the Blue Jay for control of the food turf.
So I put them in the post as they're all handsome guys, as well as fierce war lords. Once they break off, the gentler birds take over so they're in the post as well. The rest of the post is some wild flowers still blooming to brighten everything up; followed by a little tour of the west side of the River. The fox sequence happened while I was sitting on the edge of the old bridge abutment taking a rest and was going to take a quick photo to show you how easy this trail is to hike. It just shows how quickly things can change in the forest. If you wan to see another sequence on the fox, go to the index in the sidebar and click on April and move down to the post entitled "Life and Death On the Vermilon River..."
Remember you can click on the photos to enlarge and turn them into a slide show.
