There is nothing more spectacular than listening to the coyote’s as the daylight ends. These were recorded outside my studio as I was editing. The land across the road opens up to over 300 acres and it is great habitat for these prowlers of the night. You can hear the youngsters call as the male brings home the meal. (I presume)
The coyote is a member of the dog family. In size and shape the coyote is like a medium-sized Collie dog, but its tail is round and bushy and is carried straight out below the level of its back. The ubiquitous coyote is found throughout North America from eastern Alaska to New England and south through Mexico to Panama. It originally ranged primarily in the northwest corner of the US, but it has adapted readily to the changes caused by human occupation and, in the past 200 years, has been steadily extending its range. Sightings now commonly occur in Florida, New England and eastern Canada.
