From the time I arrived until I left, I heard intermittent barking. From the tone, it sounded like a female coyote, and by the end of my visit it had crossed my path and was on the same side of the bluff as me. Usually I see the male coyote hanging around me. I wonder if this one lost a mate?
I took Sam the Border Collie along with me today. We went to go check the eagle activity on nests 3 & 4. Happy to report both nests sites have eagles working on building up their nests.
I saw the Nest 3 pair mating on the nest the other day. I think, without looking back in my notes, the Nest 6 pair still holds the record for the earliest mating in January. January 10th, it seems.
Nest 5 pair was working on their nest a couple days ago.
