Just thought I’d mention a cool sighting I had on Sunday afternoon. I had just pulled out of the parking lot at DeKorte and right up on the very exposed grassy ridge line to the left (just past the train tracks) was a very healthy-looking coyote.
He was just checking things out and I quickly pulled over to grab a shot of him but a car came zipping up, saw him too and came to a quick stop right parallel to where he was thus scaring him off.
I was totally bummed to not get a pic but thought it was worth sharing since I know coyote sightings are somewhat uncommon – though perhaps not rare…
Looked like he was well-fed. Certainly a lot healthier looking than the spindly one I saw in Montclair a few years back near Watchung Reservation.
Hopefully if I see him again I’ll get a shot sometime.
