Yesterday, Tuesday, was a slow-fox day. She and 3 little ones were out for a short time midmorning. They had a squirrel for breakfast. I obviously didn’t see all the fox activity during the day, because I went out later and found remnants of a fast-food bag. They’d eaten the scraps. Then this morning she had an empty chili can.
I worked in the garden last night. Buffy didn’t move while I worked. She had high hopes.
The family didn’t come out last night until it was to dark to take pictures. This morning they were out from 8 – 8:45. She appeared to be eating something. It ended up a young one that she was maybe grooming.The most I saw of them at one time was 4. There are 5 in all. They played, they ate, one nursed a little, and there was a lot of pouncing going on. She was always on the watch and trotted off 5 or 6 times.
The food is always brought in for feeding and then taken away from the den so it won’t attract predators.
