View from my window......

So I was sitting there sewing away and I caught a glimpse of something red out of the corner of my eye. I looked up to see a fox carrying a very dead squirrel in it's mouth standing on my neighbours driveway at the edge of our front lawn. It then proceeded to dig a hole  in our lawn and bury said squirrel.

What cheek!! 

It was there for quite awhile and my husband and son took a few pictures. It's not the first time we've seen her/him. I think it's living under our neighbours back shed.

The first two were taken by my son from my window.


My husband took these from the front porch. I think the fox noticed him perhaps.....





It then finished covering the hole it dug with leaves. At that point a car came along and it sauntered off.

Take care:)

  1. Wow - looks like he/she has been getting lots to eat! That tail is amazing. Lucky you to have a front row seat to see this. We have a family living in the bank just behind our building and we often see them going about their business.

  3. Amazing that you were able to get such great pictures. I have only seen a fox two times. Once along the road and it jumped back into a cornfield. The we saw one sauntering along the walkway at the VA hospital in Marion Indiana. I had no idea they buried their food!!

    1. I didn't either but there it was digging away just like a dog. Despite the fact that my husband was obviously right there it very carefully covered the area with leaves. Very cool and collected. A city fox.

    1. Much better that the fat old skunk we get. He wanders up and down the driveway some mornings. He's beautiful in his own way :)
