Caught on the Cam! Red Fox Stalking Birds

Watch this video of two red fox stalking a guinea hen and two peahens. The guinea hen jumps up on the gate and into the goat field. The two peahens follow her up to the gate but do not go in. The guinea hen gets chased back out of the goat field by a red fox. The fox walks over to the edge of the fence and watches the birds. The birds are curious and not very smart and they walk back over to the fence while the fox is still there. The red fox walks off screen to the left and the birds walk off screen. The fox comes back and jumps up on the goat log. It sits down and waits. The birds come back while the fox sits there looking at them. The fox walks off to the right of the screen and the birds run out of sight. A second red fox appears on screen to the left. It stands near the logs watching the birds, who are not far. You can see one of the white peahens appear for a bit then it goes off screen and comes back again. The fox is off to the left waiting. It moves near the gate and the stupid birds come back within feet of it but on the other side of the fence. The second fox moves off to the right of the screen and the birds also walk off to the right of the screen.

Luckily none of the birds got eaten that day. They all ran down near the chicken coop and hung out with the two Great Pyrenees, who protected them the rest of the day along with the chickens. If the birds are not careful it won't be long before one of the fox eats them. We used to have about 20 guinea fowl. The one you see in the video is the last one left. Since it does not have other guineas to hang with, it hangs out with the peahens. All of the other guineas were eaten by the foxes. I believe the foxes were wary of the peahens large size and that is what kept them from darting after the guinea. The peahens are very large birds and foxes are not into taking chances against larger animals if they can avoid it.
