Today during an impoundment survey at Back Bay NWR Geralyn Morales and I saw a coyote. It was just standing in some water at the far edge of H pool. It didn't move at first, giving us great looks at him. Then he simply walked off toward the east into the shrub/scrub. It was the first coyote I've ever seen in the East. The photo here is not of the individual we saw. Ours was indeed a very healthy looking individual, with very handsome fur with reddish tinges. He didn't look the least bit scrawny or mangy as so many coyotes look. He was a handsome brute.
