Back in the coyote days..

This is a look back to February 2012, when coyotes were plentiful at the Ridgefield NWR.  An early morning breakfast for this coyote.  Over the past few years, the refuge has all but exterminated the coyotes to ensure the survival and proliferation of the Columbian White-tailed ...

Rare at Ridgefield NWR

An image of a coyote taken at the Ridgefield NWR, November 26, 2012, with my then new Canon 5D Mark III.  At present, coyotes are rarely seen at the refuge due to their extermination to allow for the recently relocated Columbian White-tailed Deer to increase their numbers.  As ... Continue Reading
