Day #057 Red Fox

We went fox tracking today, we have been aware of nighttime visitors to the garden for a while now but haven't been sure if they be canine or feline. Well, it turns out some of them are vulpine! We are a bit concerned for the chickens and we have been trying to work out how they get in and with the aid of the snow we found his entry point...temporary fix is now in place. Last night we think the fox chased a mouse before catching it on the patio and leaving pretty much the way he came, completely ignoring the chickens.

I painted, rather appropriately I think, this little wooden fox perched on yesterday's snowball. I think he has seen something....
