Looks like a fox, maybe? (reply...)

That looks more like a fox to me! Coyotes aren't known to be in Labrador (yet). Foxes in the province tend to more often be the dark morph (like the one in your photo) rather than the classic "red fox" of fairy tales. They are the same species though - just a different colour morph.

It's still a great sighting! The bear is too :)

I will do that! I am hoping they will hit Petley beach in front of my house this year.

If you go to that beach again, you should try going just before dark. I was there a few days ago, and after dark there were flounder, tomcod, and even an ocean pout with the capelin close enough to see from the beach. There might be other beaches that have the same fish, but that beach is fairly shallow and that makes it easier to see the fish.  (reply...)

Thanks. We were just driving on the road and there they were, watching from a clearing.  (reply...)

I have posted my sighting to e-caplin. Apparently caplin rolled in that location on the night of July 15.

Hi Tom - please post these to ecapelin.ca if you haven't already done so! It's being fronted by a former MSc student of mine - now a Research Scientist at DFO. (reply...)

those schools are photographed looking down from the remains of my marina wharf. Very close to shore, sometimes only a few feet from the beach.
