Lots of visitors
It seems as if the nicer weather is bring all of the animals out into the yard.
Early in the morning, the coyote was in the woods behind our house. I am not sure if this is the same one we have previously spotted. If so, the winter was easy, because he seems heavier and more muscular. The coyote's run through the trees was effortless and beautiful to watch.
It seems as if the back yard is the fox's shortcut. He often trots by, stopping to sniff at Danny's favorite spots.
I looked out in the afternoon and there was the red tailed hawk, perched in a tree, close to the feeders. Below on the pond were Maddy and Paddy (the mallard ducks).
Lunchtime brought the woodchuck out from under the shed.
No wonder that Danny can spend an hour in the yard- sniffing, running forward, doubling back and sniffing again.
