I was just checking the Bodega Marine Laboratory webcam to see what the weather conditions were like at the coast. I was quite surprised to find a coyote in the image -- see photo below from webcam. The webcam photos are updated every 5 minutes, so the chances of catching a coyote passing by seem pretty slim. This is also relevant to the blog post on December 1st when I was wondering about how some gumboot chitons had made it to the grassland. Eric's favorite theory is that a coyote brought them up from the beach...perhaps he's right!?
