In addition to migrating birds and colorful wildflowers, springtime also means it is coyote puppy season in the Forest Preserves of Cook County. 

Each spring, wildlife biologists follow-up on mother coyotes to locate dens and conduct health work-ups on the puppies as part of the Urban Coyote Research Project, a partnership between the Forest Preserves of Cook County, Cook County Animal & Rabies Control, Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation and The Ohio State University.
