For a couple of years now, every night at the edge of dark, I would see a fox come down the edge of the yard, circle around through the woods, come out in my neighbors yard and trek back across the front yard and back into the woods. It is a nightly routine that I enjoy, watching out the window trying to catch a glimpse and hoping she would stop for a while which she occasionally does.
Several weeks ago after catching one photo on the trail camera, it was evident that she had been nursing and kept hoping she would bring the young ones by. Finally one night, she eased out at the edge of the woods with a young one with her.
The adult female is a pretty little fox. Nice mask markings and a nice bushy tail. She is the most visible at the edge of dark going about her search pattern with a seasoned determination. The male who I have only been seeing for about a year and on the rare occasion is not as handsome. His tail is a little on the ragged side and his mask is not as well defined.
