“Our” fox jogged through the forest around 7:15 this morning. We didn’t get a great look at her because she was 20-50 feet back in the forest, but we still saw her–somewhat. She did the same thing a few days ago around the same time so clearly 7 to 7:30am is a good fox sighting window.
Unfortunately, we would have had a better look at her a few days ago if I hadn’t shut my office window. I had accidentally left it open the night before (one of those passive solar + masonry stove = too warm in the house days). I went into my office, realized that it was colder than usual, and shut the window–only to see a streak of red-brown near the small pond on the edge of the meadow/forest.
Yup, Ms. Fox had made her way out of the forest, but I startled her so back she went into the trees. Drat!!
I’m curious what she is doing around 7 o’clock in the morning. Finding breakfast? Walking her territory? Going for a morning jog? Not sure, but we hope she keeps showing herself. And, needless to say, I have started looking outside before shutting any windows.
