Birding the back roads of Newfoundland does not always yield a rare bird, but the experience rarely fails to offer up something of interest. Over the last two weeks, I have seen three moose, making them somewhat "ho-hum" now. However, when this Red Fox appeared right in front of me, it was exciting.
Not all Red Foxes fit the standard coloring of the great red body and tail. Some have much darker coloring, but the one constant is the black feet.
I was in no hurry to get out of the car to photography this great fox. While foxes are typically wary of humans and rarely attack, there is always the outside chance that the one before you just might be the exception. So what do these creatures eat? Well they eat a lot!
Note: I was recently told a coyote was spotted on Power's Road. It is wise to be vigilant.
