Fox Family In Our Yard

We have a brush pile about 20 yds. from the house that has 2 or 3 deep holes going underground. This has served as a den for many different animals, but now is home to 3 adult foxes and 5 babies. We have had such fun watching the parents take care of their little ones. The adults come in shifts and pull the babes from a hole in the ground. Then the babies jump around and wrestle while the adults keep a careful eye on our house. They seem to be somewhat comfortable with us. My husband was outside taking some pictures of other things in the yard, and the fox and pups continued to stay out and enjoy the sunny day!
