What lurks under the grain bins?

Down the road from us are a whole row of steel graineries.
In these graineries we have grain stored for our animals.
However, something lurks under these grain bins?

These grain bins are of course a paradise for mice and..

While we were collecting grain we noticed that there was a family of foxes living under the grain bins, the 3 babies are very curious and would peek out from under the grain bins, after a while they would vernture out to snap at butterflies, scratch their ears, stretch out, jump on and off wooden beams and of course lie and enjoy the evening sun.
Here are a whole bunch of pictures of baby foxes.

All this happens while mom is out hunting in the fields close to these grain bins

When moms away, the babies come out to play...

Every few evenings I drive down to see how the babies are doing,
so unless their mother moves them,
you might be seeing lots of foxy pictures on this blog!

  1. They are so cute but I heard just the other day, for the very first time, the sound a fox makes. I had been told they have a "scream" but hearing it (we were in Pennsylvania at a farm that had just had all their chickens wiped out by a fox earlier in the week) was unnerving.
