A pair of these guys used to have a nest in a yard a few blocks from mine, but they haven’t used for the last two years, as far as I can tell. On a similar note, I haven’t seen the foxes for a few days and I’m worried the mother might have moved her kits to another den. Why is anyone’s guess.
It surprised me that more people don’t know about these kits, until I realized that most of the times I see them are after dark. Even if they come above ground in the day, they’re not nearly as active. But now they’re starting to get spunky and Mom has a bit of a job keeping them in line….
More on the foxes…
The next day the dead possum was gone – I assume they ate it later but why they would let it get soggy first beats me.
