Then there is the coyote... a year ago September. They are consistent visitors in our forest.
Nov. 24 – JB was fetching mail, and as he was watching for traffic, up and down the highway, he spotted the coyote crossing quite quickly!
Down at the trailcam I've put some of my pumpkins. The deer nibble at them. Some, like the buck, whack away at them. This looks like a smaller critter. The jays have been at them, too. I'm happy not to waste the pumpkins.
In the meantime, this is what he did in front of the camera!
Then, I realized we have at least three coyotes. A bigger one, plus two that hang out together. One of the pair has a wonky leg, which it has had for awhile.
Somebody moved the pumpkin from in front of the camera!
He visited the trailcam and left his mark! It was cleaned in the rain!
