The big wildlife event of the past week was in Newton, although it’s true that we saw two pine siskins in our heritage apple tree, and got a good long look at a pileated woodpecker across the driveway in Casco last weekend.

Driving home from work last Monday (Dec 29 ’08) I saw a red fox run across Parker Street, halfway down the hill from Dedham Street to Meadowbrook Road. My first impression was of a cat on the left side of the street running into the road, but it was a little too high and much much too long, especially the big wide fox tail! It was moving fast and was far enough away that I didn’t get a good enough look at the head to be sure, but “fox” is my story and I’m sticking to it.
