Red Foxes at Bombay Hook NWR, DE

Winter at Bombay Hook is usually a pretty solid bet when it comes to trying to see Red Foxes. I made it there a few times this Winter, and all but one visit I saw Red Foxes.

Be Patient, Be Observant

I'd guess within a month some of the female foxes will give birth to Fox Kits! And then within another handful of weeks kits should start to show themselves, coming out of the dens for the first times.

By early May there were kits a couple years ago, and these looks sort of big, so maybe they're 5 weeks old.

These kits were smaller, and maybe 3 or so weeks old (from Blackwater Refuge):

For some more info on Bombay Hook Refuge see this blogger site I setup...


And here is the rest of it.

Thanks for stopping by and telling me about photo grind. I see that they have posted this post also, but at least your tag shows it was originally posted on your blog.

I have experimented with your tag and put it on my last post, but realize it will only show on future material they rip off from me.

Superb photographs by the way. I like them very much.

D'oh, I thought it worked, I guess I just didn't wait long enough.

That site is hosted by "" and they might respond to a DMCA complaint, I tried but didn't do it right.

I also reported them to google's AdSense for stealing my content, a violation of their ToS.
