fox or coyote?????

Post by wabi » Thu Aug 16, 2012 7:18 pm

Had an interesting pic on the game cam today.
The two fawns that are regulars at the feeder were there at 8:48PM.
Next pic was a somewhat blurry critter running through at 8:52PM.
Both foxes and coyotes in the area, but neither are really all that common. I'd say the foxes outnumber the coyotes in the area.
Wish the camera had been in daylight mode and it was a color pic. :roll:
