Coyote Fence


This is the coyote fence in the backyard of the condo we rented.  If you look closely you can see that it's too early for any spring planting yet but above the pots hangs one of the bird feeders we kept full during our stay, plus the suet cage on top.  The house finches and the doves that visited us regularly kept emptying the feeders at dizzying speed (we provided water, too), but they ignored the suet. No visits from coyotes!!

  3. This is one of the BEST fences I've seen on Good Fences today. Really fabulous and such a good purpose, too. Have a great day!

  4. Love the term "coyote fence". We get a few around here, but none close to the house.

  5. We could use a coyote fence right in our neighborhood. Lots of coyotes we're told but I haven't seen any. Not the most attractive fence but if it serves the purpose of its name, that's a good thing!

  6. A coyote fence. That is a new term to me. It has a very rustic feeling. It would not suit most condo buildings I have seen.

  7. Cedar posts and baling wire make for a tight fence. A nice fit for the adobe walled structures of New Mexico.

  8. I have seen coyotes walking across the top of the 6-foot wall in our back yard and waling down the street inside our gated community. I don't think this fence would keep them out.

  10. I absolutely love the look of coyote fences! Yes, isn't amazing how fast those birds can empty a feeder?! During the winter, I was sometimes filling ours twice a day.

  11. I know exactly what you mean when you say "dizzying speed". Between the peach-faced lovebirds, the mourning doves, and the finches and sparrows, the birds around my yard can empty the feeder in a matter of hours. I had a suet block in the front yard and it took literally months before it was gone. Maybe southwestern birds aren't that fond of the suet mix.

  12. Cool fence! Keeps out the coyotes, huh? We might need that here if we get chickens this spring. Here from Good Fences.

  16. Well there's a first for me- a coyote fence? We let ours run free around here. Just kidding..I hear them at night when they get to running in packs and yelling...I'm glad we haven't had any issues with them. Now the wild hogs? we might need a fence against those one day.

  22. Are you speaking of your visit in past tense? Over so soon?? If so, have a safe trip home.
    A beautiful, rustic fence - very nice for Santa Fe. Judging by what we hear we've got plenty of coyotes around here, but we've only seen one or two during the day.

  28. That's a sturdy fence there Kate, I like that it has two very positive uses, perfect for bird feeders and strong enough too keep unwelcome guests out :)

  29. How interesting! I sure love that part of the country! I'm off to look at more of your blog!

  30. Very cool fence and much different from anything around here. I guess coyote fences need to be much more foolproof.
