Spotted this Fox at the Red Rock Lakes Wildlife preserve in Montana. Appears to be a bit of an opportunist as he spent considerable time at this Bluebird house obviously working to catch an inhabitant exiting the place. Several adult birds raised a ruckus and dive bombed him to no avail, but he also finallly left . . . empty mouthed.
