Coyote Turd

First picture is of Blue Bonnets growing along highway 118.
The Foots are here for a few days along with Bill's son Weston and I went over to their place for supper last night. In spite of me feeling pretty lousy I had a great time visiting and darn good steak and salad. They had eaten burgers over here a couple of days ago and I showed them the stuff I'd been finding around here. Evidently it impressed Weston enough that he got out at their place and rounded a bunch of stuff up there. They are on high ground to so it looks like the indians preferred to camp on the high places.  I've sure enjoyed having the Foots here and will miss them when they are gone.

This morning when I went out to the jeep I notices what looked like a coyote turd on the hood. I didn't know coyotes were climbers or jumpers? I have heard of a Bobcat in the area though so I guess it could be from that???

Strange!

  4. That "turd" looks more like an owl pellet. Google it.

  5. I think you started a trend and a lot more people in the area are looking around and seeing what is in their property.

    Loved the picture of the blue bonnets :)

  6. Anon Jack, That would be a big owl. Keep your small pets inside folks.

    MsB, its always nice to see what the ancients left behind. I say be reverent about it though.

  7. tffnguy,
    "That would be a big owl"
    Ha! Indeed it would if that came out the end of the owl I believe you're thinking of! Owls regurgitate indigestible material such as bones, teeth, fur and feathers of the prey they eat.
    I enjoy your blog and look forward to your posts.

  8. Jack, I don't have a clue where it came from and I'm not sure I want to.

    Bkid, I'll stick with cigars.

  9. Looks like a coon or ring tail cat to me, but I'm 500 miles away, so it's just a guess.

  13. My son went out one morning and there was a skunk on his car hood. Never heard of that either. He just backed away. lol

  14. TnT, that wouldn't be a good thing to find. Can't say I wouldn't back away to.

  16. Never seen either down here Chris. I can't say though. It may well been an upchuck of an owl?
