A Wintry Sunrise

wintry sunrise

Sunrise as I followed fox tracks on a cold winter morning.

Our last snow showed evidence of fox tracks all over the farm. Across the pond, around the chicken coop, over to the banty coop, and all around the duck house (above).

The fox even popped up on top of the duck coop to investigate. I can’t imagine what the ducks were thinking.

Just another peaceful morning at Downeast Thunder Farm.

    Pretty cold here in western New York, -5 right now in Hamburg NY. We don’t live in as much a remote place as you, town is a mile away, but we live on a wooded lot with the Eighteen Mile Creek in our backyard. The Creek was carved out during the Ice age when the Great Lakes were formed, it is a great area for finding fossils. I like your wildlife updates. We have a lot of the same critters living amongst us, in fact we have a pack of 10 deer that bed down very close by. We watch them come & go from our bedroom window. This winter has been the harshest in years but also very beautiful. Stay Warm : )
