The red fox family is still occupying their den, and the kits are more active than ever, at all times of the day. So much for their “nocturnally active” descriptor. The fox kits like to get out and tussle in the middle of the day from about 10 a.m to 2 p.m. and again in the evening from about 6 p.m. well past midnight. Some nights they are active all night, so I’m not sure when they are sleeping.
The game camera captured many images of fox play on this gloomy, overcast, snowy morning a couple of days ago.
The camera captured Father Fox trotting up the hill, head down, like he might be carrying something, but he was turned away from the camera and I couldn’t see if he had caught something or not.
I will be away for the next two weeks traveling, so this will be the last fox update.
