Yard Update

A furry family lives under the barn.  It’s not the foxes that were here earlier.

I posted a blog about the foxes denning under the barn, and that was the last day I saw them.

This is the last picture I took on that day.

The picture of them nursing remains my favorite picture from last summer.

Then recently an eastern phoebe family nested in the barn.

The fledgings left the nest in 16 days, and the parents are now nesting again. I’m not documenting this nesting because of the ka-zillions of mites in the area of the nest (ground and all).

Apparently the groundhogs have a den in the strip pit hills behind us.
