Then there was another visitor on the garden path, a Coyote. I wasn't too surprised as we sometimes hear them howling during the summer nights.
A month later I placed the camera in a different location on the lower garden path and here is a Coyote going up the steps.
I don't think this is the same coyote in all the pictures as this next one looks a little smaller than the last.
This could be one of the reasons that we had very few, if any gophers in the garden.
