It has been some years since I have heard the high yipe-yipe-yip of a coyote in the night but there was no mistaking the sound. It was in Lester's Field. Many new calves have been born there this month as well as Sandy and Sandra Crane's new twin baby chicks.
I heard the sound of a four-wheeler start in the night and the sound of gunshot.

For four days, the crane family had not arrived to eat from the feeders and I began to fear the worst. But, this morning there they all were. Mom and Dad and the two beautiful yellow chicks.

Gunshot will scare coyote away. I doubt that they were hurt but moved on down the way to hunt. I have not heard any more.

Love,
Betty

The Cranes recognize a good home. Don't be surprised if you see them painting a sign: "Home Sweet Home"

Coyotes eat cats where I live. I love cats, so don't like coyotes.

We have sandhill cranes here. They are monogamous and stay together for life. They visit our yard with their babies, usually two, and eat seeds and plants from the ground. The cats don't mess with them. They make a heck of a noise when you get near them.

Dear Al,
Sandhill Cranes have enough power in their necks and beaks to poke a hole in a human head with one peck. I have respect for Sandy and Sandra. This will be the fifth set of twins they have brought to the front yard feeder. Today, they chased the squirrels off. Shocked Hardly anyone can affect the determination of the squirrels. Laughing I swear I heard one of the squirrels say, "Tomorrow is a new day!"

Love,
Betty
