Finally picked up the camera the other day...not really sure why. Just a back yard visitor.

He is beautiful! You should pick up the camera more often, you have delightful visitors. And you should get creative with them. Make a Covid portfolio.

Creative processing, textures, etc, can make something amazing out of these through-the-window shots. That scene I posted last week of the interior of the old fort was shot through horridly scarred and dirty plexiglass.

I love it! The gray fox has always been my favorite; much classier than the common red fox! By the bye, , the gray is quite agile as an arboreal species - fun to watch one chase a squirrel - admittedly, rarely successfully!

They are native throughout the US, and were widely more common than the red fox, but beginning in the late 60s- early - 70s their ## in the NE have decreased to the point they are now outnumbered by the reds. There has been some suggestion that they may be more susceptible to canine distemper than are reds. During the early 60s when foxes were significant wildlife reservoirs of rabies, foxes were heavily trapped in upstate NY and northern PA; many were delivered to our lab at Cornell for rabies diagnosis; grays outnumbered reds 3 to 1. I saw them on the rural property of a friend in central Delmarva in 1964-65.
They are claimed to be unique as the only arboreal canid species, but I have observed red fox climbing trees as well.

Great information Dave, thank you...first time we saw it, it was on top of that bird bath drinking.

And I must admit to always having preferred the looks of the gray fox! A definite subdued elegance compared with the blatantly garish, flashy red version!
