A pair of ravens

I had thought our visiting raven was a singleton, but a few days ago he brought his mate to the garden. I have no idea where they are nesting, but it would be wonderful to see a baby raven in the spring.

Handsome swain

The vixen has paired off with this dog fox. Isn't he a handsome fellow? Just look at that thick brush! He made short work of the bird food, which I put on upturned tins so that the birds wouldn't have to flounder in the snow.
