And Coyotes Eat Crickets!

Not until I blew these photos up could I see that what was being eaten was a cricket! It appears that the coyote was able to locate the bug by smell. It then pushed leaves aside and grabbed the insect. From the way the coyote’s mouth moved — tiny skilled manipulating movements —  I got the impression that maybe the head or some other unwanted part was cut off and discarded — maybe unfit for consumption?
