|Fox Den Camera Updates
4/23/2018: There are 6 fox kits at the den. This is the 3rd
location the female has moved the kits to this season. The
camera is fairly portable, so we can move it if needed.
Currently the camera is about 70 yards from the den. We have it
further away so we do not scare the mother. In the evenings will
rotate the camera away from the den site so the mother does not
see any of the IR LED's which might cause her to move the kits.
The camera is streaming from a farm location in south western
Pennsylvania. The den site is at the edge of a field which has
been used by red fox in previous years. We are running 500' of
power from a house to the den site and picking up WiFi from 1/4
mile from another house. We want to personally thank the Regalla
and Wingard families for providing power and Internet for the
Red Fox Information
Red Foxes mate in the winter and the female fox gives birth to a litter
of 2-12 “kits” in the spring. The kits are dark gray in color at the
time of birth, but grow a new coat within a month. Both the male and
female fox cares for the kits until they are ready to leave in the fall.
Foxes are omnivores who hunt mainly small rodents, birds and rabbits.
However, they will occasionally eat vegetables, fruit, mice, and fish.
