We had a visitor in our backyard today. He was trying to get Athena and Melina's attention😱. Coyotes are known for tricking dogs into thinking they want to play then run to their pack🤤Good thing Ryan was paying attention 😍 #coyote#wildlifephotography#naturephotography
Lucky to be able to enjoy breakfast views like these. I was too slow in capturing the rare sighting of three adult Eagles in the perch together. Hadn’t seen that before! #baldeagle#ctwildlife#southbury#lakezoar
The state of Connecticut runs a tracking program to better understand bobcats and their territories. With over half of our town protected, Lyme is an ideal habitat for cats just like this one. This adult bobcat is beautiful (grumpy but beautiful!), but let’s not forget it is still a wild animal (hear that roar?!🙀) If you see an animal like this in the wild, please keep your distance and enjoy it from afar. You can learn more about this project, and report your sightings, by following the link in our bio! #bobcat#ctwildlife#givethemspace@ctdeeppix#connecticut#wildlife#itsamazingoutthere
State wildlife biologist Jason Hawley has been putting the word out to trappers: if you accidentally catch a bobcat, don’t release it. Instead, call his team.
As bobcats return to New England following decades of conservation and forest regrowth, the Connecticut Bobcat Project wants to learn more about what these mysterious wild cats are up to. “Most people think of bobcats as needing woods and living out in the middle of nowhere, but we’re finding they’re very adaptable animals,” Hawley said.
So far, Connecticut’s project has collared about 85 cats, tracking bobcats through rural forests -- and even one in Bridgeport, Connecticut’s biggest city.
#redfox#ctwildlife#ctaudubon first time seeing this pair of foxes in back yard. We’ve seen them in the open front before, but never this close. Took them a while to get the nerve to jump back out. Would not want our 3 Cavalier Spaniels to meet these 2!
