The Circle of Life

Tonight we were moving furniture because I'm having my carpets cleaned at 8am tomorrow morning. My husband was putting some stuff by one of our den doors and all of a sudden he called me to "Hurry and look out the window!" I looked out and saw two young coyotes coming in our backyard. We only have a temporary fence due to some construction going on below us (see post "A Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On".) The coyotes were coming in to get the wild rabbits that we have all over our backyard. You might say, "Ah, poor bunnies!" but I say, "Hooray for the coyotes!" because I'm sick of all the rabbit poop all over our yard. We also have a field hawk that tries to get the rabbits, but he's not big enough to carry them off so he only kills them. All I can say is, "More power to you Mother Nature!"

If your coyotes are anything like the ones that live near me, they NEED a few rabbits! Ours are so scrawny, and look like they are starving to death. I think all of the building that has been going on has depleted their food supply. One good thing, if a famine comes, you can always live off rabbit. ;0)

Try to get a picture of the field hawk/falcon killing a rabbit...that would be cool. :)
