Today I was driving on Old Lower River Road (Vancouver, WA) when I spotted a fox not far from the recycling plant. It stopped and looked at me, then disappeared into the brush. It had thick fur, mostly dark-colored (brown/black)  with reddish-gold areas. The nose of the fox was reddish-gold. I assume it was a darker morph of a red fox. This is the only fox I have seen since I moved to Washington state, and its location was fairly close to an urban area.
In other news, I saw a red-tailed hawk with jesses on its legs at Vancouver Lake.  They were kind of noisy, so I assume the falconer is not trying to encourage the hawk to hunt. I can't imagine prey sticking around after hearing that clanging.
