In 2009 and 2010, I was fortunate enough to find a Red Fox den with kits. However, it was vacant in 2011. This year, I discovered that a Ground Hog had taken over that den. Yesterday, as I was heading out on my walk, I noticed two Red Fox kits playing in a lightly wooded area adjacent to the 1st fairway. I was able to get a couple of shots before they got spooked and returned to the den - a den previously occupied by a Ground Hog for the last three or four years!
Today I went out pretty early hoping to find them again. Their mom was walking up the cart path just as I started out. I got behind a tree and snapped a couple of shots of her as she walked by. Then I went to the den finding four kits at play. By the time I got close enough to take some photos, three of the kits had seen me and returned the den. But, the fourth was so busy eating a squirrel that he didn't notice me as I managed to get behind a large oak tree.
