Coyote Cafe

Where I live, this time of year, the coyotes are quite active.  There are a lot of jack rabbits and other prey around and the coyotes seem to view it as an all you can eat buffet.  Good riddance to the jack rabbits, I say.

Of course there is a down side to all this canine activity.  It sounded like one of them was in my yard last night.  They were yapping and howling and it was quite loud.  News of threats. News of good eats.. Hell, I don't know what they howl about but it's quite a ruckus.  

Back when I worked in Yellowstone, you could sometimes hear the wolves howling.  The wolves have an elegant, almost mystical howl.  Not so with coyotes.  Coyote howls are in short bursts and not at all appealing to listen to.  I doubt they care what I think.  I just wish they'd go down the street and howl by someone else's window.
