The Urban Fox, and Ducks . . .

We haven't seen our little fox for a few days now, but three pair of ducks have been splashing in the creek between snowstorms.

I hope they've read Robert McCloskey's book Make Way for Ducklings, and know to watch for foxes in the woods . . . each spring for the past few years we've had ducks in the creek, and ducklings. We hold our breath until we see how many ducklings there will be each spring, then watch as the ducklings learn to navigate the tricky waters of our small creek, and make their way around the back yard.

It's something to look forward to while the snow is flurrying.
