Hunting Northern Harrier
While officially it is spring winter conditions with cold nights and occasionally snow continue. A pair of Norther Harriers have been hunting the meadows surrounding my home the last few days. This shot was taken from our home's rear deck.
Large flocks of starlings are frequently seen now flying in unison from one feeding spot to another. Here you can see the remnants of yesterday's snow storm lying on the distant mountain side.
Red Fox exhibiting symptoms of Sarcoptic Mange
Recently I have observed a red fox hunting in the meadow behind my home. The fox seems to prefer hunting in the warm sunshine. From the poor condition of the fox's coat I would expect that it is having problems staying warm.
