As I was watching the sun come up from a bridge over Thumb Creek, I noticed a coyote "mousing" in the meadow. Can you see it in the photo below? Here's a closer picture The coyote wandered around in the meadow for about 15 minutes or so before stopping under some trees, and cocking its head back and forth to listen. It then began to dig furiously until it reached down and grabbed a pocket gopher. At that point it noticed me and ran off into the woods with its breakfast.
