Fox is Elsewhere, A New Bird, and More - UPDATE February 26, 2023


Our good neighbor a half mile away sees the limping red fox each evening, which explains why we haven’t seen him for days. RavenRavenNo reports of Bob Cat, the gray fox, or the fisher, which is why I haven’t written as many updates lately. We put out fresh meat for whoever might come each night, but none has been taken. This raven and its mate come around but are cautious and don’t get much of the meat.Gray Jays on deer - file photoGray Jays on deer - file photo

Today was a nice surprise with the first sighting here of a gray jay this winter. I wondered where they went. I didn’t get a decent picture, though, so I used an old favorite picture of a pair sharing a road-killed deer back in January 1981, some 42 years ago at my old backwoods USFS Kawishiwi Field Laboratory office 17 miles east of here.

Thank you for all you do,
