Hawk Sighting

The hawk was out again this morning. He was high in a tree, sitting for a long time. Then suddenly he swooped down to the ground, made a noise, and apparently caught something. I tried to look in the binoculars but couldn't tell what he got, maybe a frog. Then the crow started calling and the hawk flew off.

Bald Tailed Fox Returns

The mangey fox spent a long time just sitting in our yard scratching himself. Maybe we should try to treat his mange again. I even saw a mangey chipmunk today! Its back above its tail was kind of bald. I wonder if chipmunks get the same kind of mange as foxes. Here is a video of the mangey fox, after he was done scratching himself.

Hawk Checks out Pond

The hawk stayed a long time looking at the pond, possibly because he was hungry for a frog. The frogs emerged earlier this year than last year. There were at least 12 of them.
