  1. Wow. Was this just a chance siting? Were you there set up for a long time? You catch amazing photo ops. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I go down to the marsh nearly every day, set up my cameras, and wait to see what shows up. I had a feeling a coyote was in the area by the behavior of the crows and other birds.

  2. These are stunning photos of a beautiful animal living it’s life. We are lucky to live side by side with wildlife. In the normal course of a day we typically don’t see the natural behavior of the coyotes other than skulking from one place to another. We have to be on our toes to be sure they don’t take one of our small animals, but I am so happy to see what you have captured, so that we can see some positive input about the coyotes for a change. Thank you so much.

  3. Great that we live with other small animals other than just humans.
    We all have the privilege of letting nature take it’s own course.
    These are wonderful photos, well done!

  4. Bill,
    AWESOME.
    Thank you for your dedication to the Marsh and yes, I see you down there everyday. The City Council is doing a study on the Edmonds Marsh and your pictures would be very helpful from a wildlife habitat perspective. Can you email Maureen Judge at [email protected] and we will set up a meeting, if possible.

  5. I initially thought that like a cat, the coyote was playing with prey it had caught. Close examination of my original photos leads me to believe it was playing with a ball of cattail roots or something similar it found on the mudflats.
