My coworkers were back out doing the big grassland bird survey. I passed on this final outing since it was getting very difficult to plow through grass that's as tall as me. Nevermind my grass allergies, almost falling into a groundhog hole (since I couldn't see it), too much walking (enough muscle pain to warrant some advil mid-day), waking up at 5 am, and wet pants from walking through dew covered grass. But they got to get some pics of the coyote pups. There are actually five of them, not just three, and they are brazen enough to lie in the company's driveway. They don't mind you in the car, but on foot they scare easily. Kind of like a safari. This is the only picture that is not a butt shot. This little one was on its own and lying in that stone covered ditch. He/She could be the runt or outcast? So snorgle-able!
