Fox - common gray fox

Isn’t this little guy/gal gorgeous?!

It’s a “common gray fox,” and my Field Guide to the Rocky Mountains says they eat rabbits, rodents, birds, grasshoppers, fruit and berries. They “often climb trees, unlike fox and coyote”! They’re found on the “lower slopes of mountains, wooded canyons and scrubby plains” in “southeastern Wyoming (rare), western, central and southeastern Colorado.” The book also says they’re “mainly nocturnal, year-round.”

Fortunately for my camera and me, this one didn’t get the nocturnal memo. 🙂

Just beautiful! I have seen a red fox here once or twice – always a thrill. Right now its mainly birds, bunnies,squirrels & my buddies, the deer. Used to see flocks of turkeys, but not since the compressor station & pipelines were built! Ah progress!
