I encountered this red fox while walking around the Landfill Loop Trail at Garbage Mountain. I was surprised to see the fox out in mid day. It appeared to be hunting. Unlike our native tree-climbing little native grey fox, which feeds primarily inland on berries and small rodents, the red fox is a larger predator that preys on ducks and shore birds, including rare and endangered rails.
The Landfill Loop Trail incorporates fantastc views of San Pablo Bay, Wildcat and San Pablo Creeks with remarkable examples of industrial water conservation and reuse, resource recovery, electrical generation, recycling and recreation.
