They are very curious and definitely enjoy human-watching as much as we enjoy fox-watching. However, check out the pup who is intently watching the sky and keep in mind where it is looking...
...because in this next picture its head moved as it followed a Common Grackle flying by.
It seemed to love the birds and was frequently caught gazing up at them. When a Barn Swallow did circles around them it had to whip its little head back and forth to keep track of it. Now if we could only make sure they grow up to respect the birds enough not to eat them - especially the Piping Plover eggs and young!
