It's denning season for the canids of Virginia. That means that I'll be spending some time tracking fox, coyote, and other footprints through the mud and snow to help me find these dens. When I find one, a camera will be going up.
Here's a good one that I found yesterday. You can tell by the amount of footprints and kicked dirt around it that it is very active.
I used extreme care and caution not to get too close or disturb the animals that may be living in there.
Here's to hoping for pups or kits of fox or coyote this spring!
