Scene in Edmonds: Coyote at the marsh

Photographer Michael P. Lowell shared these shots from his visit Saturday morning to the Edmonds Marsh at low tide. He’s named the coyote Whitetail, as it has a
small white tip at the end of its tail — so folks can keep an eye out for him.

  1. Keeping an eye out means keeping your cats and small dogs in the house. They can’t roam or they may be harmed or worse.

  2. Beautiful. Their natural habitat gets smaller every day. They are resilient and adaptable. We should be adaptable also. Let them be what they are and be cautious with the ones in our care that may be vulnerable.

      I’m curious if you would still be saying ” Let them be what they are and be cautious and adaptable.? “We should be adaptable also. Let them be what they are and be cautious with the ones in our care that may be vulnerable.” Just wondering if one of these that you want to let them be what they are, if what they are happens to attack your child would you still be saying that? Because I’m not so sure i want to ” Let them be what they are” and take the chance of my kids or animals get attacked or worse mauled to death which is what they are capable, especially when they are hungry.

  3. Thanks to Michael Lowell for these great photos of evidence that life in our Edmonds Marsh is a natural habitat that includes predators like coyotes. Coyotes help maintain the balance that is needed to reduce the populations of rodents and other species.

    If I had a small pet I would certainly protect it from threats like hawks, eagles, coyotes, and off-leash dogs.

  4. These are beautiful photos. We have coyotes around often, always keep an eye on the pets. But we love seeing and hearing them, also the deer that come through every once in awhile and all the beautiful birds. I feel with all the development, losing so many trees that we won’t see to many one day.

  5. I awoke in the middle of the night a couple days ago and heard a lone coyote howl through my open bedroom window in Mountlake Terrace , and again a short time later but more in the distance. I use to hear a chorus of them occasionally. No more… What does it say about our own dominant and consumptive species ? I very much appreciated the photo!

  6. Fascinating close up photos! I haven’t seen any coyotes in our area of Mukilteo for over a year, so they must be hanging now in Edmonds! Thank you to Michael Lowell for sharing his nature pics with us.

    1. There was speculation that this might be a fox but a Department of Fish and Wildlife person did confirm it is indeed a coyote.
