Unlike other cemeteries I go to, Calvery Cemetery has no Canada Geese grazing and pooping all over the place. Instead, it has this guy.


A couple more pictures can be seen if you click on this picture and check out the set he is in called State Bird Count.

A super capture Steve, I can see why no geese. All I got was another view of the same picture when I clicked on it.

Oops! Try the link below. I guess I loaded the wrong one.

Glad you like the shot. So rare it is to have one of these pose at a decent range I was lucky.

Not bald, but very short fur on the muzzle. This guy was was probably shedding his winter coat like other animals I have seen lately. I hope to get a shot in the future to see how he looks then. Thanks for looking and commenting and thanks also Annie.

Yeah I forgot about the spring moult. Our foxes sometimes look a bit mangy during that time. Be nice to see this fella in his summer coat....

What's the shipping and handling on one or these fellows? I've got a dozen or so groundhogs in the graveyard and could definitely use some help controlling them.

Looks like a plan....first the coyote to control the geese then wolves to get rid of the coyotes and then grizzlies to control the wolves and soon you have a regular old Yellowstone.

I like it and will suggest it to the city elders. I posted some Wood Duck pictures from a Chicago city pond awhile back. I heard there was talk of putting coyotes there to control the geese. Nothing came of it though, and at least one coyote moved in on his own. I await the wolves with baited breath.
