The birds are fed, action at the bird feeder is lovely. It's just not good photography weather. Despite this, Daisy and I went walkies Jan. 5th. We found evidence that the fox has been around. It was but a shadow on the trailcam Jan. 4th. I did capture it in December. I've switched to stills for the sake of my batteries!

This is a scan from my Petersen's Field Guide. It is about 11.5" from paw heel to toe in front, 18.5" from front to rear. We don't have dogs about. It must be our foxy fox.
Daisy insisted on going for a walk. She even led the way. She took off onto the wetland, which isn't frozen, and I had to call her back. She bounced onto the dock, too. Then onto the frog pond. I didn't dare, as I didn't think it was frozen enough to hold my weight.
My hand prints are 8" long, which fits for the red fox. It's tough photographing the tracks in the snow! I've played with the contrast some.
A certain cat was nibbling at the bulrushes!
Back at the house, you can see my new bird bath.
