Coyote Bark and Howl

The three recordings above were recorded in October, 2019.  There is an outbreak of distemper among the raccoons in our area which may have lured more coyotes than usual.  The coyotes are very active at this time.

Coyote Calls

Coyote Calls II

All recorded in Penrose, North Carolina.

A very vocal animal, the coyote can be found in all the U.S. states except Hawaii.  The carnivorous coyote does most of its hunting at night which is when I made all the recordings above.  The coyote is indeed a "trickster" seemingly invisible to those walking their dogs in their suburban neighborhoods while this elusive creature sits and watches.  The most efficient predator in North America, the coyote has now taken up residence in many U.S. cities and has learned to live side by side with humans.

Some of the sounds above could be males yipping at a siren as well as a greeting.  Coyotes can sometimes bark in distress if dogs are in the area.  Fascinating animals with a variety of calls, eleven of which have been identified by humans.
