Wildlife Update
Posted on Apr 30th, 2014

Spring (finally) is upon us, and wildlife babies are arriving.  Just a couple of thoughts:
The foxes are again active behind #’s 8, 9, and 10.  The vixen has had four cubs that I’ve seen, and she is still nursing, though I don’t know how long that will last.  They seem to be wary of humans, but one of the cubs came up to the sliding door under our deck, and gave the cats something to look at.  Fred has seen the cubs under his truck in Glenmore Circle.
The gist of all this is that these animals are wild.  Resist feeding or interacting with these cute little guys; they will soon be learning to hunt.  All of our pets should be leashed when walking outside, and neither children nor adults should approach the foxes.
The other day I saw two tiny goslings; today there was only one.  Keep in mind that the Canada geese are very protective of their young and please do not harass them.  Remember that the adults will molt in the summer and be flightless for a time.  They are protected under Federal law.
Our first hummingbird arrived on April 5.  The recipe for their sugar water is 1/4c. sugar to 1c. water.  There is no need to use coloring in the water; in fact, it is not recommended at all.  Most feeders have red plastic somewhere, and the birds will find it easily.
Deer are ever present, so stay alert while driving around the neighborhood and pay special attention at dawn and dusk.
We are fortunate to have an environment shared by wildlife and hopefully both humans and animals will safely coexist in Dunbarton.
