February 2007 Sightings in the Windsor Area
Monday, February 5: Bitter cold arrived on the weekend with overnight temperatures falling as low as -20C early this morning (a record low for this date). Despite the chilly weather there has been lots of activity at the centre's feeders and sightings of other wildlife such as White-tailed Deer (up to 9 near the nature centre), Coyote and Red Fox in recent weeks.
People are often surprised that Coyotes (sometimes called brush wolves) are resident in the Windsor area. Coyotes are actually fairly common but difficult to see. They don't tend to be very active during the daylight hours and their tracks can be confused with tracks made by dogs. Coyotes are easier to see in the winter when there is less cover and they may be more active during the day.
