Red Fox

I have been seeing a Red Fox family by the woods. There is an adult fox and also two young kits, they look about the size of an average puppy. Sometimes I hear them barking at night as well. The pups were playing around some and at one point they went off into the woods. So after waiting a bit I decided to follow them, but the adult fox barked at me, so I turned back so I wouldn’t disturb them. Red Foxes are not actually red, but are more like a tangerine color this time of year. Then in the fall they turn more of a rusty auburn shade. We also have another kind of fox here called the Gray Fox, and that fox is a silvery gray on top with brown underneath and yellow-orange on the sides.
