Predator’s Day on Windy Hill: Hawks and Coyotes

Here’s a couple notes to catch up on the hiking scene.   Yesterday, we saw a relaxing coyote and circling red-tailed hawks at Windy Hill Open Space.   No sign of my mysterious black and white dihedral-winged hunters.

The coyote froze in its tracks as we came around the corner for the last long pull up Spring Trail.   After perceiving no threat, it lay down in the tall brown grass and rolled.   As we approached up the trail, it oh-so-casually decided to get up and investigate the smells on the far shoulder of the hill.

Returning down the hill, we spotted two circling hawks.  One sped to attack speed and dive-bombed the oak tree but came away with empty claws.

Another beautiful day in the neighborhood!
