Coyotes around?

For the past few days, I've heard occasional crazy howling that I've always taken to be coyotes. I heard it last winter too, though usually the rest of the year is quiet. It's eerie, but otherwise fine - except that it makes my dog bark, which is not quite fun at 2:30am.

Oh well!

We have regular visits from coyotes, who sniff out the chickens and are irritated that they can't get to them. Their voices are very different from the yipping foxes we also get. So yes, I would guess you're hearing coyotes from the woods along Mt. Pleasant.
