Oh yeah, didn't notice that he's based in London, so it makes sense that it'd be an unfamiliar species.

Cool hawkmoth. Looks like Manduca sp., which includes tobacco hornworm moth and tomato hornworm moth.

There's a good photo of an American kestrel here:

Killed a coyote? I wonder if it stomped it or broke its neck by tossing it?

I assume stomped. Donkeys can be used as guard animals for sheep flocks, so it wouldn't surprise me if that's the backstory of the pic.

Not an ass chewing?

Is that a coyote, or a fox? It seems large for fox, but right shape and color.

Looks Coyote to me. They are pretty variable, and IIRC got nearly as big as wolves when wolves were absent from Yellowstone, then shrunk down when the wolves were reintroduced and established themselves.

Thanks. I'm not especially familiar with either. I have a vague memory that coyotes might be interbreeding with other canids.

Coywolves are a thing in the Northeast. They're in 4 of the 5 boroughs too.
