The Coyotes have been at war with humans for many years. Listed as a varmint, nuisance or whatever they choose to call them they are the original bad guy. Many hunters (Not all) use the Coyote for target practice. People living in remote housing tracks and near wild areas blame their missing cats, small dogs and other random occurrences on the song dog, despite the fact they moved into the coyotes home country.
#5 Recent Hermit Thrush visiting my back yard pond in Oakley. #6 Older Swallow tail butterfly near Morgan Territory. #7 Recent Western Fence Lizard in Oakley. #8 Recent Cedar Waxwing also in Oakley. #9 Older Burrowing owl group in Byron. #10 Same Song dog as #1 "shaking off" after much appreciated rainfall at Los Vaqueros. (Alameda side) Note: I will be chasing Swains and Burrowing owls in upcoming days... Thanks, Dave
