Howling Coyotes in Otter Valley
Weather can be a strange thing in the mountains in March. Friday morning was 22 degrees, just three degrees above the winter’s lowest reading. Yesterday afternoon, the thermometer read 81 degrees, the highest since before Superstorm Sandy. This morning it was back down to 41, and my walk took me up toward Oak Mountain. The sunrise was a good one, and will be the last winter one I photograph.
Buddy suddenly was very aware of sounds coming from the woods. and the one minute video below will share the sounds of the coyotes that he heard. It’s unusual for them to howl after sunrise, but today must have been something special for them. You can also hear a barking dog in the distance.
