For the past two nights, my wife and I have seen a fox in the backyard. He comes between 10:30 pm and 11:00 pm, and he seems to be interested in the birdseed my wife tosses for the birds (I know they like blackberries, but I didn't think they liked sunflower seeds too). I lit him up with a Maglite this evening, and it didn't appear to bother him until I moved from one window to another. Then, he took off over the ridge at the edge of the backyard.
Wish I could see him during the day...
