I have seen more Ruby-crowned Kinglets so far this year than I saw during the entire fall and winter months last year. It must be going to be a colder, snowier winter up north this year. This is not one of the cleaner shots I got today but like the splash of the ruby the side view shots did not show.
Lots of Eastern Bluebirds out which I love. Their soft murmuring is so pleasant to hear.
The bright red of the Cardinal is really standing out now that trees are dulling in color. I think I tend to be more appreciative of them during the winter months.
The appearance of a Brown Creeper caught me off guard today. I went from light to shade quickly just trying to verify I saw what I thought I did so the shot is a little blurry.
I had one curious shot on the trail camera. The dark tip of the tail says fox but I swear this fox is quite a bit taller than other foxes in the area. It almost has a coyote look with the long legs. The long time resident adults I can identify by sight from their markings and tail as well as one of the kits born this year as she has a distintive mark shape on her muzzle. I am wondering if this is one of the other kits born this year that I have not seen since they reached adult size.
