I remember the foxes as red. I could mostly see their faces through thick
vegetation and their backs were not visible.
I will look out for spotted skunks, having forgotten they are not really
spotted, but have multiple stripes. I retreated from it pretty soon after
discovering it as I was not sure what it might do! I had a Skunk coming
right toward me in the road while doing a Nightjar Survey near Pocahontas
one time. Something was coming right down the edge of the pavement late
at night. As soon as I could see it was a skunk I hopped in the car as
fast as I could! Although finding no Nighjars there sure was a friendly
skunk! Too friendly for me!
Last summer I saw a squirrel with a white nose at Percy Quin SP. I don't
see it in my Field Guide. Maybe a Fox Squirrel?

I don't remember seeing a spotted skunk but saw a striped one a month ago
near Raymond Lake. Last summer I saw two foxes from the nature trail at
West Florida Boundary on the Natchez Trace Parkway, Mile 108. It was
summer and the water was low around bullrushes. I was surprised to see
them in such a wet habitat. I usually see them in dryer areas.
