Wildlife Wednesday - The Creature Feature




Mama coons brings up the four babies every day for food before the crowd...



This little one is one of the three kits. He and his siblings were playing King of the Mountain...



This afternoon Mr Fox took the kits into the backyard for the first time. He got busy eating sunflower seed underneath the bird tree, and they ran off into the woods. After 5 minutes or so, he suddenly realized they were nowhere around. It was almost like you could see the lightbulb over his head "Hey -- where are the kids?! Francis will eat me alive if I come home without them!" He ran frantically around the edge of the woods and dashed away. About 10 minutes passed, and the kids came up. The Mr ran up and chased them all the way to the tack room before returning to eat the seed. "Gol' durn kids, almost ruined the whole day!" you could imagine him saying.....

LOL. I haven't had a close encounter with a fox. It would be great to see one up close.

We do have raccoons though. They've actually caused us some problems by living under our cottage in the back yard. They tried to attack us a few times. Thankfully they finally moved across the creek. We see them but they don't try to get us.

you have the best wildlife there - who needs TV? You got your own live nature show!

Those baby coons are the cutest - I don't even know if I ever saw a fox in real life, hmmm...maybe when I lived in Germany because we had a lot of fox in the woods there.

I hope you'll have a wonderful day today and God bless you and your animals. Hope the horses are doing well too!

I'm with Marilyn. I'd love to see a fox up close. Actually, come to think of it... I'd like to see a fox at all! Never seen one except in films and things!

You have a wonderful blog here. I hope you won't mind if I visit awhile... :)

Thanks for visiting my blog!

A few years ago my dog had a family of racoons trapped in a tree beside our house. I've not seen any in my yard since. I think I seen a fox on the side of our hill in the woods back in April. The dogs heard it and chased it away. Our mule isn't a real mule it called a mule but kind of like a 4wheeler type of golf cart.

Love your rings!

Have a Wonderful Week!
