Y is for Yap, Yelp, Yip and Yowl

My theme for the A to Z Challenge: Desert Canyon Living


Yap, yelp, yip and yowl are all sounds made by coyotes,


native animals of the canyon.

  1. Cool pictures. We have a lot of coyotes by us, and I love the sound they make when a bunch of them get going at the same time.

  5. They look like cuddly dogs but I know they're not. We don't have coyotes in the UK... as far as I'm aware. We have foxes wandering the pavements but that's about it.

  6. More great shots, Inger! I love the 3rd one--the lone coyote howling in the snow.

  7. You're soooo creative, Inger! What a super Y. And fab pics! One of my favorite expressions is, The coyote that runs lives longer than the wolf who stays to fight.

    Hope you're feeling better. Have a lovely weekend.

  8. We have a ton of coyotes around here and I do not like them at all. To me they are just a big pain in the rear.

  10. Wonderful pictures. I especially love the coyote howling in the snow.
    There are some coyotes in the woods near my place, and I always love when I get a glimpse of them.

  11. Really great pictures. I had a bunch of them when I moved in. The first night here I thought I was under Indian attack with all the Yipping. Haven't seen any in a long time so I really enjoyed your pictures.

  12. When i first moved here to Montana, I was advised by the nice rancher neighbor to the north to shoot them on site - they will go after freshborn calves and kill them. Back in Wisconsin, we were on the river, so we just let coyotes be...

    It wasnt until I saw a lone one, pouncing on a mouse this winter, that I realized they kind of look like our Dexterdog, and act like him too...I was glad he was out of range, because at that moment I dont think I could have shot him...they are great rodent control...

  16. WOW Inger, that's scary. I don't think I would keep chickens if I were you.

  17. They are beautiful, Inger. But I'm sure they're not as cuddly and lovable as I'd like to believe they are. These pictures are just great!! Do your dogs ever go chasing after them? Do they ever go chasing after your dogs? Hope you're feeling better.

  18. I love the yowling picture. I know so little about coyotes - I need to do some reading! Do they 'haunt' the same area? Do you recognize specific coyotes? We have them here but don't see them that often. We also have them at our new house. We got to see the horses across the street chase one out of their pasture. Boy, did he run fast with 5 horses in pursuit!

  19. They always scared me...but I find them interesting...:)JP

  21. Wonderful photographs. Haven't heard any coyotes close around here, but used to hear them howl around the golf course at Leisure World in Laguna Woods, CA where my in-laws were living. Eerie sound.
