Nov 13 6p. lone coyote watching parking lot from the edge of the woods near the dumpsters. It ran back into the woods when it saw me approaching the parking lot. I did note that both dumpsters were closed at the time. no photos as it happened too quick.

I have seen another lone coyote at this location before (a few weeks ago). I don't remember the date which is why I did not post that sighting. It was at 6:30a and nosing the dumpsters... coyote ran off when my car appproached the parking lot

I may see this coyote again

Description

Jan 23 10:30a driving south on FM1382 One coyote seen running along side the road in the grass between Cedar Hill State Park and the Cedar Mountain Preserve... headed toward the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center. The Coyote looked over its shoulder at me and turned toward the tree line. There was a car tailgating me so I couldn't stop to pull over to take a photo. By the time I had turned around and drove back by the location the coyote was gone. The only section not fenced in that area is the Cedar Mountain Preserve. my best guess is it ducked in there

Feb 22 716a Sunrise hike to cattail pond at cedar ridge preserve. Cold morning Frost on the ground. I observed 2 large dogs (off lead) running by the pond on Fossil Valley Trail. Their owner hiked by a few minutes later and they all headed to Escarpment Trail away from the pond. After they left a coyote began a serenade for about 3 min. presumably set off by the two large dogs.

I left the end of the pond in search of the coyote in hopes to get a photo. I followed the sounds up the hill on Fossil Valley Trail (you can hear me on the recording). I got close but never saw the coyote. The location indicated is where I believe the sounds were coming from.

I returned to the pond and resumed my sunrise hike.

(usually they are set off by fire engines when I am too far away and there is too much other noise to record... I got lucky this day)

Mar 7 630am
Coyote encounter at the front of Cedar Ridge Preserve as soon as you drive through the gate, It took me off guard seeing it so close to the entrance. It took off toward the butterfly garden (or maybe the chicken coop next door to crp? I don't believe I heard the rooster yesterday)

If you look closely at my very blurry photo you can make out the blurry rear end of coyote on the left side of the photo. (photo taken before dawn through the windshield of my car in a hurry to capture the image before it disappears while driving and yes my right shoulder still is not fully healed... its a miracle I obtained any image!)

Jan 28 705p Driving (South on Straus Rd) home after picking up dogs from daycare. one coyote ran across the street and into the cedar ridge preserve. Definitely NOT a domestic dog I got a very good look at it when it stopped at the tree line. The coyote watched as I stopped the car and reached for my camera. It took off into CRP before I could try to photograph it. It was very dark but I counted houses... 12 houses before you reach Highpointe Lane

Sunset hike at USACE Overlook at Joe Pool Lake

About to conclude my sunset hike... sunset was at 530p and it is now almost dark .. I was near Old Mansfield road and took a quick look back at my favorite cove. my eye caught two shadowy figures bound over a hill toward the water. I increased my attention and focus on the fast moving objects and realized they were two coyotes. (this is very near a CHSP campsite so wanted to make sure the were not domestic dogs) based their coloring, behavior, and previous sightings at CHSP I believe these are the same two coyotes reported here by others. I apologize for photo quality but it was almost dark, they were moving very fast, and I was handholding my Nikon Coolpix at max zoom.

FINALLY I saw a Coyote on my regular walk up here! It had taken over a year for one of the commoner mammals to show itself. This dog looked healthy.
