Magical Coyotes & Other Wildlife Captured on Trail Cam

Within the woods is where the magic happens! That’s especially true when you capture a coyote on the trail camera. I compiled some recent trail cam videos of coyotes along with bears, ravens and deer. I hope you enjoy.

“Coyotes have the gift of seldom being seen; they keep to the edge of vision and beyond, loping in and out of cover on the plains and in highlands. —N. Scott Momday

So, what’s so special about the coyote? What makes them so magical?

 Here are three great reasons that make a coyote special.

First, coyotes are efficient hunters because of their sharp senses. They use mostly their sense of hearing and sense of smell to capture their prey. Whenever prey is not available, they will eat large quantities of berries and fruits.

Second, coyotes are extremely fast and can run as fast as 64 km (40 miles) per hour.

Third, coyotes are nocturnal and have nightly serenades of yaps and howls. Plus, their howls are a code for other coyotes. Coyotes have a pecking order (Alpha, beta, etc). Their howls let each coyote know who is in charge! You can read more on Decoding Coyotes Yips, Barks, and Howls.

Wishing you a magical day!  Enjoy the trail cam video.

Hey Everyone! 

April is an exciting time to see wildlife in the woods. All the animals are active this month. Black bears are emerging from their dens and showing up around the neighborhood. I spotted a black bear and her cubs a few miles from my home and captured a short video. 

Read more about the black bears here

Plus, the coyotes are roaming around at night, and the raccoons are busy socailizing and searching for food.

As always, enjoy the trail cam videos!

Hello Friends, 

Our trail cam captured footage of this coyote searching for food at night and exploring the back of the woods. Coyotes first appeared in South Carolina 30 years ago and continue to expand in numbers. In Autumn young pups leave their mother and search for food and territory. Coyotes prey on small animals such as rodents and rabbits. Their diet usually consists of small insects, berries, and fruit. Read more about coyotes here. And here.

Enjoy the trail cam videos!

Trail Camera- Coyote with a Paper Plate

This one is my favorites. I had mentioned in a previous post how much I adore the coyotes I hear at night. See post here.

Well, I guess it’s lunchtime!

A coyote’s keen senses help them survive. With eyes that can spot the smallest movement, ears that can hear the faintest rustle, and legs designed for racing.
