Everyone is out here! I saw mountain biker, hiker, walkers with dogs, coyotes and birds. When I first started, 6:30am, a pack of coyotes outnumbered everyone; 8 coyotes ran through one section of this preserve! I saw one coyote and grabbed my camera. Then I watched one coyote wait for all in the pack to pass him and then he ran off too.
Birds were quiet this morning, but here were some I did see and photograph. I want to return here with my mountain bicycle when I know birding and photography are not my top priority.
Above, greater roadrunner, ash-throated flycatcher, Anna’s hummingbird, and Cooper’s hawk. Plenty of house finches, lesser goldfinches, mourning doves and some birds I have no idea what they are. Interesting place to spend some time!

Love all the bird shots, excellent composition.
Exciting day in the great outdoors. I have never seen a pack of 8 coyotes. That is a unique experience.
Awesome photos of birds. The unique angles are captivating.
Thank you for sharing!
