Coyotes on the Move

Wildlife photographer, Talia Rose, captured images of a pair of coyotes this morning along the South Fork Eel River near the Humboldt/Mendocino County line.

“I looked out my window this morning while in the midst of doing my Otter reporting and just caught a glimpse of a Coyote across the river as it disappeared out of my view. I grabbed my camera and flew out my gate jogging down the little hill to the water’s edge as fast as my broken body would carry me,” she wrote on her County Line Wild Facebook page.

Her quick actions were doubly rewarded when she soon found the coyote was not alone. “I found the Coyote crossing the shallow rapids and was thrilled to see another one ahead of it,” she said.

The pair hurried through the area, not paying any attention to other wildlife in the area. Talia stated, “They passed right by the flock of ducks without even looking at them. I enjoyed about a full minute watching them hurry along the edge of the water until they crossed into the wall of trees and were gone.”

Beautiful animals. They seem very fit, I wonder what they have been eating?

I remember laughing at this in the early 90s when I was a kid. It’s still pretty funny.
I’m sure the coyotes have plenty of road kill to dine on along that stretch.
