Wildlife videos: Fox cam!

Reader Michael called my attention to this Fox Cam, which shows a large and entertaining brood. The YouTube notes: A family of wild Red Foxes has raised kits in a den on the campus of the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in Holderness, New Hampshire for three successive springs. In 2016 she reared 5 kits, […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Comments on the photo posts have been few, and I’m not sure whether that means people aren’t looking at them. But I’d urge you to say something if you like a photo, for the contributors surely like their work to be appreciated, and that’s the only way they’ll know. If you see something, say something. […]

Fox rescue!

Here’s a mangy fox that got rehabilitated because of nice people. The YouTube notes: We saw this fox looking really awful and walking in the middle of the road , so we went home and got a cage and some gloves. When we came back he had somehow gotten a piece of culvert stuck around […]

A visit to Japan’s Kinka Squirrel Village

I’m worn out from politics and want to take a break today with ducks, squirrels, and other persiflage. Rachel and Jun are a couple in Japan (she’s American, he’s Japanese), known to me from Jun’s videos showing him shopping with his cat and then cooking in front of his cat, letting the cat sniff each […]

Stubs the squirrel

So many squirrels are eating nuts and seeds on my windowsill that I can’t recognize them all. There are babies, old adults, and battle-scarred veterans. This is one of the latter, and a squirrel I can easily recognize. I call it “Stubs” because a big chunk of its tail is missing (you can see the […]

Squirrel massage

Okay, is this squirrel a pet, is it sick, or what? No normal squirrel would allow you to do this to it! h/t: Blue

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have a new contributor who sent some lovely photos of fox kits. There are too many to post, even with the selection Steve sent, so I’ll pick some of my favorites. His notes are indented; My name is Steve Adams and I’ve been a long time reader of your website and of your books. […]

Here’s the fox!

Did you spot him? Here’s the original photo: And then the fox. As Graham wrote: He’s in the shrubbery to the left of the picture. The 2nd is a close up, not very good I’m afraid but it does show that he was there. He knows I’m there but as long as I don’t go […]

Spot the fox!

Reader Graham from England (Bexhill-on-Sea, about 6 miles west of Hastings on the south coast), has a fox in his garden. Can you spot it? (click to enlarge). Here are his notes:  I was just sitting out in my back garden, enjoying a coffee when something moved & caught my eye. It’s my local fox […]

Collecting a cold moggie, and a squirrel with a green mustache

This short video of how a Russian tabby comes home from the snow was tweeted by Dick King-Smith and sent to me by Matthew. How clever! That cat could make a good jailbreak, too! Here’s a squirrel named Seymour who’s enjoying a treat of avocado. In the process, he gives himself a green mustache!
