Combined Our World and Nature Notes: My Wild Deck

For the second summer in a row, a fox family has showed up on my deck.


They are fun to watch from my door and windows.


I'm guessing the bird are less amused when the foxes drink out of their bath.


Trying to nap is hard when you itch.


The male cardinal below is enjoying a bath.


I've seen quite a few bluejays lately.


American robins always spend a lot of time bathing on my deck in the summer.


Juvenile American Robins are always fun to watch.


Below a female cardinal's feathers look so soft.


Next a brown thrasher is deciding on a bath.

Wow, the fox family looks like they have made themselves right at home. Very cool! I see one occasionally but never that close. Hope you are having a great summer!

When we lived in the country, I saw a fox only when dashing from one side of our long lane to the other, never ever this close! Your deck seems to be home-base for quite a number of animals. :)

I want to live on your deck ... what fun. A fox family ... I am surprised how brazon. Our fox family (who come and go from year to year depending on the food supply) are very shy and would have no part of my deck ... though the youngsters once ate at my ground feeders in the back. Our fox are more red, but they are all beautiful and their call is so mournful ... sometimes it makes me sad to think about how difficult their lives must be. Loved this post ...

The foxes are so beautiful!

Precious! If I had that display on my deck, I'd never get anything done. Wait ... I don't have that display on my deck and I still don't get anything done! Wonderful shots you got of the birds and foxes. I'm jealous.

To have that fox family on your deck ... just absolutely stunning and amazing. So glad I took the time to catch up on your posts (we have wifi where we're camped this week, yay!). THANK goodness for Feedly, so I didn't lose out by missing something as wonderful as this post.
