Coyotes move within a landscape of attentiveness. I have seen their eyes in the creosote bushes and among mesquite trees. They have watched me. And all the times that I saw no eyes, that I kept walking and never knew, there were still coyotes. When I have seen them trot away, when I have stepped from the floorboard of my truck, leaned on the door, and watched them as they watched me over their shoulders, I have been aware for that moment of how much more there is. Of how I have only seen only an instant of a broad and rich life.

I confess to a sympathy for the coyote that has grown until it lives in the deepest part of my nature.

I think we have a litter of newborn coyotes under our deck. How long would you guess they'll stay if we leave them alone? Or do you think they'll move on if we make a bunch of noise on the deck?
We saw a coyote close to the house the other day, usually they keep to the woods. Then this was on the front lawn this morning. We don’t have dogs and the cats always bury their shit.
Hi! New to this thread. I live in northern New Jersey in coyote country. I hear the coyotes howl and yip all the time from a distance because there’s a lot of woods and mountain in my homes immediate area. But I went out late tonight to walk my dog (1:30 AM) and while out there I heard what almost sounded like a goose a long ways away. Then I heard it again just slightly closer. And again. Closer. To which I started thinking, why would a goose be flying by and honking at 1:30 in the morning? A few more seconds went by and a few more “honks”, for lack of a better term, happened.. each one significantly closer. The last honk before I decided we’re getting inside was maybe 10 feet away. It was scary because I’ve never heard this type of noise that late in the night before, and even scarier because of how much ground it covered in the minimal time I was outside. Has anyone ever heard this kind of noise from a coyote before? Was it hunting me or my dog? I know the door I use to go outside makes a very loud noise so I’m wondering if it heard that and decided it was just curious or wanted to look for a fight. Thanks!

Sorry for poor quality. I spotted what I thought was a fox in Graceland Cemetery in Chicago but am now wondering if it was actually a coyote. I come from a country with neither so I'm not used to seeing them!
