Baby Fox Cubs!

The foxes in our backyard had two cubs! We saw them for the first time this morning. They are wicked cute and we expect them to stick around through the summer.

This is the view out Allison's bedroom window. Turn up the sound to hear what it sounded like when our kids first saw the fox cubs. Actually, this is pretty much what it sounds like all the time.





Fox Cubs The Movie


Update April 13th 2009: We've now seen 4 cubs and both a mom and dad fox taking care of them. Yesterday I saw one of the parents bring a small mouse home for dinner. The cubs seemed very excited.

Tonight we were watching them play and I noticed one of the parents (the Mom I think) is not putting its left rear leg down.  She was spooked by our neighbor playing in his yard and ran off.  Hopefully she'll be ok.
