The Cupboard Was Bare

In the wee hours this morning, a fox sniffed at a small feeding trough in my garden. Unfortunately, bluejays and neighbourhood cats had removed the chicken skin it held, so the fox got only a smell.

The little wooden trough is only twenty inches long, which gives you an idea of just how small these elegant little animals are.


  1. And he just had to have a second look to make sure there was nothing in the trough. Love that bushy tail.

  2. Great video! A few weeks ago we were walking early one morning through our downtown. A fox ran by about 20 feet from us. He was smaller than I thought he would be but so beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh what a neat video. Yes they are very thin little things and so beautiful. Two ran through our fenced backyard last year squeezing through where the gates latched-very small areas. we are seeing lots of deer lately and the odd glimpse of the barred owl.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm always glad to hear from you and appreciate the time you take to comment.
