When you feed birds it seems to attract a lot of other critters. Mice and squirrels come in to feed on the seeds. They are usually followed by predators like the pine martin, bobcat and fox who are always looking for a nice well fed squirrel. This red fox has been coming around at night but with the colder temperatures she ventured close during the daylight hours. This time of year their fur is so thick that it gives them a beautiful appearance. In this photo she is watching a red squirrel on the other side of the yard.
