Red-Tailed Fox Looks for a Squirrel Breakfast

Never fails, as soon as I post that the Colvin Run Habitat signature red-tailed fox has not been observed for some time, he returns.

I first observed him under the side dogwood tree at the end of what I assume was a run at the squirrels. He continued a trot into the side woods. Within five minutes, he had returned to his throne in the brush.

This red-tailed fox made two additional runs on the squirrels. After each, he trots through the side woods, then returns to his throne.

At times this morning, he was, as he often does, simply napping, waiting for more than one squirrel to show up and eat sunflower seeds under the bird feeders.
Oh yes, and as if to answer the last question in my last post – is he a she – at the end of his last squirrel run, he returned to one of the bushes near the water barrel, raised his leg, and marked his territory. Sorry, no photos of the marking (see this previous post of his marking).
A quick word on all of the photos. It was a gray, overcast, drizzling morning, light conditions were poor at best. The result is the photos are not as crisp as I would like. But, poor photos of this friend is better than no photos.
