And while we wait for ducklings, this is pretty great stuff from the Humane Rescue Alliance:

“Last night, the Humane Rescue Alliance received a call of two fox kits trapped in a basement window well.

When HRA Animal Control Officer Jesien arrived on scene, he observed two fox kits who appeared to be about 6 weeks old, consistent with the developmental stage of initial ventures away from their mother/den areas.

Officer Jesien proceeded to towel wrap both kits and removed them from the window well. After he placed the kits on the grass, they immediately ran off toward a heavily forested area, demonstrating excellent maneuverability and speed. When Officer Jesien moved his flashlight toward the tree line, he observed a healthy adult female fox — the mom, who was watching the rescue nearby from the woods.”

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
