Nature notes from all over: my source reports the fox that lives under the stable brought her four young kits out this evening. Hardly bigger than kittens. They all looked around in amazement. What a lovely sight that must have been. Nature is all around us. The chipmunks are out of hibernation. Big hawk in the yard.
Kit Fox smelling (not eating) the daisies
A friend of our in Riverwoods, Illinois had a fox that came to their yard for handouts. Brazen as brass. My fervent hope is that these young kits will live to adulthood. I see far too many run over in the Boston area. Two in our neighborhood alone. Let's hope mama finds enough for them to eat.
