A California Scrub-Jay dive bombs a Gray Fox.

Name change alert! The powers that be have split the Western Scrub-Jay into two species. Our Western Scrub-Jay is now a California Scrub-Jay. This feisty jay decided the Gray fox was an intruder and started dive bombing it. Hal Fogel photographed the event.

IMG_9026.CR2The fox decided this wasn't the place to explore, and it headed off.

Hal has been visited by Gray foxes in the past. This is one of my favorite photos of Hal's - a very intent fox!
