Coyote (ringtone)

Coyote, Canis latrans
Generally common throughout the western US and Canada, the coyote, has extended its range into the entire US, even places as urban as Boston and New York City. Unlike wolves, coyotes do not roam in a pack, although they will travel in small, single-sexed groups. Coyote barks and howls are most often heard at dusk or at night and are most common during the spring mating season. The Coyote may pair for several years or even for life, especially when populations are low. In feeding, the Coyote is an opportunist, eating rabbits, mice, ground squirrels, pocket gophers, and other small mammals, as well as birds, frogs, toads, snakes, insects, and many kinds of fruit. Carrion is an important food source in winter. Sometimes an American Badger serves as an involuntary supplier of smaller animals: While it digs for rodents at one end of a burrow, a Coyote waits to pounce on any that emerge from an escape hole at the other end.
