On our way to Big White, we once again saw bald eagles. Some were flying, but one was hanging out in a tree. The same tree we have seen eagles in for years on our trips to Big White.
|Majestic in the tree|
|I got too close, so he left|
|Off he goes|
|No mistaking an eagle in flight|
Two nights ago, I thought I saw a coyote in my back alley. I was right. An hour later, I saw him through the slats standing behind the fence. Then he sauntered down my alley...
|Here he comes|
|Pausing to check stuff out|
|Looking for something, but what?|
Today, we saw two of them in the woodlot across the street.
On the bright side, coyotes are pack animals when they live or travel together, but are solitary hunters. This is mating season, so two travelling together are typically a "new family" looking for potential den sites.
On an unrelated matter...
I've been fending off lots of spam comments to this blog for the last few months, deleting literally hundreds of similarly nonsensical comments a day, mostly from from older posts (one 2011 post on Biking the Kananaskis Valley has had over 2,500 hits in the last month alone, with about 1,000 spam comments being posted to it, all of which I have to delete). I've now limited comments on older posts, plus turned on word recognition to prevent automated bots from putting up comments on recent posts. So I apologize to my 5 regular readers for any inconvenience.
