Winter Weather Break

We have had a break in the weather and all the wild things have come out looking for a meal. A deer killed along the highway attracts scavengers, black vultures. This is the first time a coyote has been spotted. So it is with nature, death for some is life for others.

    Yes, we have to take precautions to live close to wild things. They are mostly at a distance. A bobcat did stroll through my back yard early one morning. I was glad I was high on my deck when he passed by. He fled for the woods as soon as he spotted me. I have never encountered anything close up. They usually hear you and are gone before you can be too close.

    When they are in the process of shedding their fur for summer, they look raggedy.

  3. I read that there were Coyotos in TN… In fact, somewhere south of Nashville, I read where Coyotos were eating small pets (dogs and cats)… SO—watch your pets!!!!

    Coyotos look like such innocent animals –but they aren’t.

    Great pictures, Donna.

    Those are some nice shots of wildlife we don’t normally see. I occasionally see a coyote wondering along around here but never one in such good shape. He’s beautiful really when you look at him.

    For a long time I had not seen them and then one morning four of the deer went running through the back yard. Although we had heard they were around and have lived here five years, this was the first time we saw the coyote.

    I was amazed to discover that we have coyotes down here in south Mobile County. I have heard them calling and checked to make sure. We had a deer in the yard the other morning. Nature amazes.
