Lot C: Coyote Spooked

All photos: Chad Ferrin, May 18, 2014, around 6:30 AM.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)

Ferrin writes in an email, "Heard some crows cawing and saw [the coyote] run up the hill in front of my house."
"He waited for a man and his unleashed pit bull to walk past,
then disappeared."  It looks like the big male has seen a few fights from the scrapes in his coat.
You know it's a male from the thick neck.  (Nice of him to pause near the Red Car Property line marker.)
That's the property line marker from the early part of the last century.  It marks the line between Lot C (in the foreground) & Silver Lake Court (the paper street upslope and out of sight).  The concrete marker is near the Roselin Public Staircase

Early morning seems to be prime time for coyotes on the Red Car Property around India and Silver Lake Ave Public Staircase.
