Coyote Searching For Meal At Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge

By | March 5, 2020

Here are more photos of a Coyote at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I posted a closeup of one a few days ago (Coyote At Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge). This one was searching in an open field that the Farmers had placed fertilizer (chicken litter) on. The smell of the chicken litter draws all types of wildlife out into these open fields.

How I Got The Shot – Coyote

I took this photo at 10:14 A.M which is late for seeing Coyotes. The sun gets harsh at this time of the morning for photographing.

I parked on the road leading to the Moody Boat Ramp. This Coyote was on the east side of the road (Trotter’s Field).

I had my camera lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
