Local Wildlife and Colors

While we can't tell you when and where this was, it was a treat to see them.  They were practice sparring and have long since taken to the hills.  The wildlife is usually spectacular in the early spring and the early fall out here.   Tonight we saw a young fox looking inquisitively up the driveway as the dogs howled at the sight of him/her.  Copper barreled down the drive to warn it off and it did run off. He came trotting right back, mission accomplished. The dens are being dug around the trails out there.  We have not had many bear sightings this year.   We saw two and one tore up our garbage pen earlier in the spring.  The birds migrating now are very beautiful, among them the yellow grosbeaks and, of course, the blue jays.  With the full moon the wildlife is just a bit more active since it is very bright outside .

The autumn colors are brilliant and we will add some photos later.   It is the peak of the color viewing season.

Back to Winter Blog

We're moving back over here for kennel coverage of the 2012-2013 season.
Preps are being made to houses and pens, straw is newly distributed and the temps are nice and cool
overnight, giving the dogs a breather from the extreme heat of this past summer.  We hope to have left the 90's and the humidity behind!
Many roadside trees are at their color peak already, providing some pretty spectacular views. We have had several hard frosts, getting to the sunflowers and the pumpkins.
All is well in the north country.
