Red Fox Day 1 2017

They're baaaaaaaack!!!!!!!!!!!! If you are a regular follower of the blog, you probably remember the red fox den from last Spring that was in the woods in my backyard. I'm happy to report that they have returned again this year. I'm not sure how many kits there are because they haven't left the den area yet, as far as I know.

Here is Mama who I am pretty sure is the same Mama as last year from the markings on her coat.


I saw one of the kits for the first time today. The kit is extremely light in color.....almost a very pale golden color. The quality of the pictures I got of the kit are very poor, but I will post one anyway just to show you the kit with the Mama. Please excuse the poor quality of the image.


Do you see the kit to the left of the adult? I will post more kit photos in the coming weeks as they begin to leave the area of the den and explore my backyard.

    1. I agree May. They are really beautiful and I just love to see them. I was standing on my deck and I love it when I make eye contact with them. They know that I am there but we are harmoniously sharing my yard and woods. It's really pretty cool.
