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.
