This just in: 4 baby foxes, pups, kits, whatever

New mom with four babies

Nature notes from all over:  my source reports the fox that lives under the stable brought her four young kits out this evening.  Hardly bigger than kittens.  They all looked around in amazement.  What a lovely sight that must have been.  Nature is all around us.  The chipmunks are out of hibernation.  Big hawk in the yard.

Kit Fox smelling (not eating) the daisies
 A friend of our in Riverwoods, Illinois had a fox that came to their yard for handouts.  Brazen as brass.  My fervent hope is that these young kits will live to adulthood.  I see far too many run over in the Boston area.  Two in our neighborhood alone.  Let's hope mama finds enough for them to eat.
