Red Fox - juvenile

I am amazed by what I see every day whether it is on the way to work, in my backyard or out with friends looking for something (we never know what). Chris and I were talking about that the other day. Each one of us seem to have good luck in finding certain animals or birds. Mine is the red-tail hawk and red fox, Chris is owls and coyotes, Janice is osprey and loon (plus the occasional bad luck lol) and Carol who enjoys everything from landscapes to birds of prey. If you look around you - you will be amazed by what you see.

Peregrine Falcon (Juvenile) and young fox

Peregrine Falcon - juvenile We had three fly over the watch today. Fast and beautiful. Was able to get some of the letters on bands hopefully enough to find out who this is.
Beautiful young fox with the start of mange. His brother or sister has a severe case of mange on the face (ears and eyes) where this one has it on his legs and paws. Lovely face.
