The Fox Pups at Kentucky Dam And More

The fox pups were active at Kentucky Dam yesterday morning. Two were busy playing together before sunrise in a field at the base of the river side of the dam. The playful kits ran up on the dam which has a road and a walkway across the top. Sadly some folks are feeding the pups evidently. They have lost much of the natural fear of people. This causes them to regularly come up on the roadway where there chances of being struck by vehicles is great.

The two pups last year also came close to people but more out of curiosity I think. They did not come up on the roadway and walkway very often. The fox will cross the road at times regardless I feel in search of food such as washed up fish along the lake shore and to drink.

The wind was abnormally out of the east and this gave me a rare chance to capture the Osprey catching fish coming at me. The normal winds have them mostly picking up fish going away. The Osprey did not feed long I only had three chances before they quit feeding. The number of heron, osprey, egrets feeding is influenced by the number of people active in the tailwaters. It being a weekend and a bit cooler the river banks were lined with fisherman as well as many boats on the water.

I did get to see the first of the year Green Heron come to the river. Usually they don’t show up along the river until the ponds and backwaters start to dry up in August.

Have a wonderful Sunday…
