05/16/18 Red Fox Kits

Posted: June 1, 2018 in Uncategorized

Well, we’re back up in Maine and looking forward to exploring Acadia National Park till the end of October. On the first day here, my next door neighbors, who are avid bike riders, mentioned to me they had seen a fox kit along a carriage road during their bike ride in the park. The next morning I headed out at sunrise. To my surprise, one kit was actually sitting on a rock waiting for me when I arrived at the location. The den was down below with several entrances. Mom had left a kill across the road and I sat and watched two of the kits going back and forth to eat. One kit was very curious about me and made a detour on one trip to come over and smell my shoes. It was quite the experience to see these little ones up close. A hiker told me there were three, the other one was probably sleeping in the den after a full meal.

    Some awesome shots – what a great experience. Missing the foxes at IBSP as I hadn’t seen any in quite a while, but I guess the snowies this winter made up for that.
