*Well, a link to Virginia’s Gannett Co. Inc  The Bold Italic, my first. If they had had more time, they’d have replaced the actual photos with a couple dozen large coyote graphics and then called the piece “Will a Wild Golden Gate Park Coyote Pup Eat Me?

I’ll tell you, San Francisco Chronicle writer CW Nevius has been fretting about these critters for a while now. And yet it’s always dogs that be biting and killing people, not no coyotes.

Notes:

-Snowy Egrets are the smallest of local egrets.

-The begging sounds the chicks make reminded me of Donald Ducks voice flutter

-Nesting in the same tree were Black Crowned Night Herons and a Great Egret

-I estimate over 50 Snowy Egret nests in this colony”

The Sidewalk Owls of the Bay Area – This Tiny Western Screech Owl Lives Just Above Your Heads – A Great Photo

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Another great shot from San Francisco nature photographer David Cruz.

“A pair of little owls (Western Screech Owl) were in a hole in a live oak tree that hangs over a quiet street in the SF Bay Area. Very cool seeing them in a quiet urban situation, cars drove right under the hollow branch at a steady residential pace. Shortly after sunset, one owl stood near the edge for a moment before flying away,  allowing me to photograph it. “
