Since the fall we have a new visitor to our garden. She is welcome to visit but I don't want this female coyote to get too comfortable and stay permanently.
We have a creek that runs behind the house and most likely she is using the creek as a way to move around the area. That said, I have seen her cross the street in front of the house.
I imagine her usual territory has been compromised in some way and she is looking elsewhere to set up home. The creek allows her some privacy and of course have access to the other animals that live by it as well. I just want her to keep away from my cat.
On another note, I finally took some photos of the ducks I see while on walks along the beach area.
I believe the ducks below are Scoters of some kind, maybe Black Scoters.
These appear to be Long tailed ducks, a mix of females and males (with the long tails).
