Yesterday I had a three Coyote day on the causeway to Antelope Island State Park, one was by itself and the other two were traveling together. The Coyote pictured above was by itself traveling across the snow-covered mudflats. It may have been looking for falcon leftovers because there was a juvenile Peregrine Falcon resting on some rocks not too far away.
The other two Coyotes were closer to the causeway and were actively hunting voles, their primary prey. The Coyote above captured a vole and was in the process of eating it. A tail and one foot is seen below the jaw of the Coyote and the furry body of the vole is to the right of the tongue.
At one point while the Coyote was eating the vole it turned and looked at me over its shoulder then went back to finishing off its meal.
When the Coyote was finished eating the vole it turned towards the causeway and licked its nose and I took this frame as its tongue stuck out.
It is always fun to see and photograph the Coyotes on Antelope Island State Park and the causeway to it.
Life is good.
