Howling by Maria Ferguson

wolf-pictures-122613-3.jpgWolves howl more frequently during breeding season.  I believe that this increase is due to the rise in levels of estradiol and progesterone in the females and testosterone in the males.  There is an escalation of howls that begin in the Fall when hormonal levels are increasing that crescendo in January during the actual estrus (ovulation) phase of their cycle.

Whatever the reason, we at the Preserve and many of the people who live in our area enjoy the results of the beautiful wild song of the Wolf.  In December I took a short video of a mid morning howl.  I was far away as I didn’t want to walk up and disturb them as the song will often change then.  Here is a link to the video.

I had my still camera with me in the enclosure the other day when the Wolves decided to grace me with a chorus howl.  I can’t describe to you the feeling you get when you are so close to them and they are singing.  The sound reverberates throughout your body.  This time, Woha came up next to me and I was moved to put my arms around her while she sang.  She allowed it and it is an experience I will never forget, truly breathtaking.  Here are some pictures I took that day.
