I still see the eagles flying over Belle Haven, although they are no longer nesting between Edgewood Terrace and Grove Drive. This morning a fox scampered through my side yard, pausing to investigate the dead bole under my stand of mock orange.
While watering the new salvia in my garden, I found a box turtle in my front bed.
Last night my cat Petal caught a skink in the garage–the skink escaped but she kept the tail.
And the bird feeder is visited by wood pigeons, robins, blue jays, mocking birds, sparrows, indigo buntings and wrens.
There is an amazing variety of wildlife living in our ‘hood.
