Fox on the Hill

There's a fair amount of wildlife in Washington, D.C., from coyotes in Rock Creek Park to blue herons, Canada geese, red tail hawks, and bald eagles. And, of course, there are deer, raccoons and red fox all over, though these animals tend to move at night and are thus rarely seen.

A red fox is now hunting during the daylight hours in front of the Capitol -- a grand location for him, as the squirrels here are so fat, tame, and openly unafraid that it's like hunting at McDonald's -- one reason there is an almost-permanent red tail hawk sitting in a tree in front of the Supreme Court.
