A few days ago a coyote came within about 40 yards of our house, drawn by some table scraps I had tossed on the ground for the wild birds. I had looked out the window when I heard a raven making a horrible racket, and there was this coyote nibbling at the "raven's food". I couldn't help but notice the unusual white and black coloring on the shoulders and back. Even at 40 yards he would hear the shutter click every time...would look up and stare intently in my direction for a few seconds, before going back to the "birdseed". I was somewhat hid behind a corner of the house, but I think he knew I was there.
