Hi Hampton, one of FHL’s contributing photographers, snapped a series of excellent shots of a fox leaving its local supermarket. We have posted them in Photo Gallery—the Rosedale Fox, so named because of the Ontario golf course it calls home.
Further, our photographer has posed an interesting question: Are there clues in the appearance, color, or other visible characteristics of this fox that reveal its sex?To read more, a subscription is required. Log in or click here to subscribe.
She looks like the little vixen we've had recently at the farm here in N..E. Not a blade of grass in view here yet. We heard mating calls and viewed prints in the snow early this year and suspect she may have cubbed also. We have been leaving meat, etc and she has been also eating hearts of sunflower seeds from our bird feeders. LOVE to see the foxes return! Any suggestions for what is good for them if she has indeed had her cubs already? Perhaps the foxes have had an easier time of it here than the coyotes since they can run on top of the snow more easily.
