Coyote at the Wisconsin Coast Guard Impoundment in Milwaukee Wisconsin on November 8th & 12th 2014

While birding the Milwaukee lakefront I came across a Coyote twice in a week at the Wisconsin Coast Guard Impoundment area. It was not the most birdie of a mornings, but these sightings made for a few fun moments. It just roamed around both times through the grass areas hoping to kick up a rodent of some sort. Images were taken on the 8th and the 12th of November 2014.

    This year we have coyotes hanging out at the nearby St. Francis Seminary woods. As maligned as they are by the public I hope I will continue to frequently be seeing them.

    I just entered one seen there on INaturalist for the citizen scientist project Milw. Co. Parks is doing. I signed up for Coyotes only so far. You have the nice pictures!
