No signs of any foxes yet this year. Last year a litter of three kits was born in the woodlot next to us. Our front lawn was a playground for them, they were a lot of fun to have around. They played like kittens, chasing each other in circles and playing stalking games. Once one of them jumped on the birdbath and seemed to dare the other two to try and knock him off. One of them ran around behind him and swatted at his tail. It worked, he jumped off and the chase was on. I missed them when they left, I'd love to see another litter this season.

Update: The fox is around! Two sightings in the past week. She looks a little filled out, could be pregnant. Time to start putting food out!
