As promised, here is our best ‘find’ from our trip to Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge. On the way there we saw this Red Fox walking through the back yard of a house that sat alone on Highway 89 and backed up to a wooded area.
They like a mix of open fields and wooded or brushy country. The lower legs and feet are black, and the trail has a white tip. This little guy was pretty wet. There was a lot of dew on the grass this morning.
It’s pretty rare to see these amazing creatures. We watched him until he disappeared into the brush.
