The other morning while I was poking around the woods I managed to capture a few seconds of a coyote serenade with my camera. There were two groups of coyotes, one just up the slope from me about 50 yards away in the trees and another one far below. I was sitting on a downed log eating a chocolate pop-tart and trying to decide on a route for the day's hike when they started singing. The sun had just come up so I suspect that they were calling the pack together after a long night's hunt.
The MP3 audio recording should be embedded below. I had to amplify the recording quite a bit so the coyote song was clearly audible. Unfortunately the amplification also boosted the mic noise, so be mindful of the volume until you know how loud it's going to be on your computer speakers or headphones.
I see a lot of wildlife on my outings I but don't often post about what I see, and when I do I generally keep the posts details-free or deliberately obscure the locations or times. This is mostly because over the years I've learned to be distrustful of some of the visitors to this blog. The weaker members of the hunting fraternity troll the Internet looking for tips on where to hunt because they've lost touch with the landscape and don't know where the animals are. Sometimes you'll see them driving aimlessly around the forest roads in the Fall and complaining that there are no deer or elk to shoot. They are a sad lot and it's best not to help them out.
