Red Fox, too!

Red fox

Red fox (Vulpes vulpes)

Put the trail cam out again on February 26, 2014, and brought it in today, March 1, to move it to yet another location.  Surprise once again!  This picture shows a red fox (Vulpes vulpes) coming in for a drink of water.  There’s a heated bird bath just in front of the fox, where the black circle is.  This visitor appeared yesterday, February 28, at 3:44 am.  You can tell it’s a red fox, not a gray fox, by the black legs–“stockings” as they’re sometimes called.  Also, the red fox has longer legs than the gray fox, which you can tell by comparing the two images.  Once again, this is an infrared image.

I’m moving the trail cam to the back of the house, where I heard the neighbor’s dog frantically going after something last night, around 11 or so.  I don’t have any windows on that side of the house (faces south), so I missed seeing what all the fuss was about.

  1. Fun! Cool, “foxy” pictures. And I am now subscribed, so I can be in the know.

    See you in a few weeks.
