Spring is producing more wildlife sightings on the mesa. CGD’s Jim Hack snapped this photo of a red fox by the Mesa Lab in April. He writes: “Jim Hurrell [CGD] and I have been seeing this fox almost every evening around 6 p.m. for the past two to three weeks. It has become very bold, walking up and down the paths whether there are people around or not.” Red foxes, which weigh about 10 pounds, mostly eat rodents, rabbits, and birds. One of four fox species in Colorado, they live in forests in the mountains and in riparian woodlands and wetlands on the plains.
