On a birding run, I ran into a beautiful Coyote hunting in a field down near Milwaukee’s lakefront. I watched it for awhile and took a few pictures. I was a distance away so it continued to hunt after I saw it and on one occasion it captured and ate a mole. It saw me after a few minutes and started to walk away. A fun little event as birding was slow today. Images were taken on November 25, 2015.
