Red Fox – 7/4/10

Observer: Andrea & Herb Daroff

Observation Date: 7/4/10

Observation Time: 5:00 p.m.

Observation Location: Pilgrim Drive

Common Name: Red Fox

Scientific Name: Vulpes vulpes

Comments: The fox was within 10 feet of our house. It spent a good 10 minutes sniffing around (looking for bugs maybe?) This was not the first time we have seen a fox in our yard but this is the first time we have seen it hanging around so close to the house and for long enough for us to be able to grab a camera. Unfortunately, we had to photograph through a window screen so the picture isn’t as sharp as it should be.
