BIRD PREDATOR

Many birders who come to Chico have never seen a swift fox here. But, driving in the shortgrass prairie 2-tracks gives everyone a good chance to find this very small prairie fox. Even though they are mostly nocturnal hunters, during the breeding season, swift foxes also hunt during daylight hours to ensure enough food can be provided to the kits. Birds and bird eggs are just some of the food items these small foxes search for and small mammals and even insects become food for these foxes.
