Birds are scarce but...
The coyote appears in Native American tales, often as being very savvy. Sometimes called prairie wolf, they once lived primarily in open prairies and deserts, but they now are found in forest and mountain habitats too. They have even colonized cities like Los Angeles.
They eat almost anything...rabbits, rodents, fish, frogs, insects, snakes, grass, carrion, bird eggs, and even Russian olive fruits. Pests to many, to others they are God's dog. They can run up to 40 miles an hour, forming packs for effective hunting. This individual was feeding withing 3 feet of 7 cows, each ignoring the others.
Fans of coyotes should enjoy reading Skywater, a fable about Brand X and his fellow coyotes by Melida Worth Popham with a very sad ending.
