I'm a Realtor in Geneva, IL.  Since this is my first blog I thought I'd throw out a fun question. I reside in the Historic district and have been amazed about a beautiful red fox strolling around the neighborhood!  It was sitting in my driveway the other day.  I've also seen it just walking down the sidewalks!  Has anyone else seen this beautiful animal??  It doesn't seem to be bothered by people, cars, etc..  A few months ago I also had a great horned owl in one of my trees.
