saw these yesterday - there seem to be three of them and they were back in the same spot today. Don't seem to have any fear of cars or people and no sign of any adult with them. They seem a bit thin, which is strange, as the area they are in is full of fat rabbits and stream/swamp terrain.

They do look thin, might be because they are so young.

Nice find Nancy, great shots. No fear of people and cars isn;t a good thing, and neither is no sign of an adult. It is possible the Mom may have been hit by a car somewhere and the babies have been left to fend for themselves, which will be tough for them if they haven't learned how to hunt yet. Sometimes the male fox helps out in such situations and sometimes they don't. But nature will help out too, even if Mom isn't around any more; the hunting instinct is very strong and they will figure out how to survive, starting with small things like mice. Rabbits will take some time. I hope they'll be OK.

I, too, hope they will be ok. In their favor is their location, in the middle of a wildlife conservation area, where all the workers are nature-philes. There are lots of ponds and streams, as in the place where I observed them, eating frogs and the like.
They are not in immediate danger of road traffic, unless they travel quite a bit. Have not seen them since the first three days, but they may have moved due to field work in the area. It was a pleasure to see them for the little bit that I did.
