Wildlife In the Backyard
Just a picture of a nest up in the top of one of my dead oak trees. I haven't seen any birds in it but it is quite a large nest. It is probably a couple feet in diameter. I don't think anything used it this spring that I can see so it is probably raised its last brood. This fall if things go right, this tree will be made into firewood for this winter.
On a side but related note, I saw the fox again in my yard but only as it was running away from me. This is the third time so it must have a den nearby. I suspect the time for kits has already occurred so if there are some, perhaps I will see them when they are older. I don't think I have ever seen a kit outside of a picture book.
