Coyotes, Quabbin reservation, Massachusetts, USA, early evening in July 2014 – by Geoff Bird

“The voices you hear belong to wildlife biologist Stephen DeStefano and author Aminatta Forna, who was presenting a documentary we were making about Jack London (during which I broke my nose on the boot of a hire-car in my desperate rush to record a freight train passing).

In July 2014 we headed deep into the Quabbin reservation in Massachusetts  in the early evening and so were miles from any other humans (it’s restricted territory where they’re trying to encourage wild species to flourish). We were there for about three hours with Stephen setting off his recorded predator calls, then pretty much as we were giving up the coyotes called.”
