The red fox was here again yesterday trying to catch a squirrel. I did not see him but he danced around the big spruce, trying to grab one of the squirrels running up the trunk. Sooner or later, the red fox will be successful. I don’t know if this is a male or female or if both have been here. They appear and disappear so quickly there is not time to figure this out.
My buddy took a ride down the road last evening to pick up a fairly fresh oppossum roadkill and brought it back here to put in the woods behind us for the red fox. If the coyotes, crows or Turkey Vultures don’t find it first, maybe the red fox will have an easy meal for his or her pups.
Oops! The red fox just came through again, running under the big spruce, across the front lawn and then across the road in front of a car. I heard a bird making an alarm call so I went to the window to look out and there was the fox. This one was not as red as the first one I saw so it could be male and female I have seen.
