No pictures for my little tale here.
On the south ridge going up Carbonate Mountain,
I saw scores of large bird dropping splashes,
each quite a few inches in diameter.
Thick and wide like a big sloppy paint brush.
I know lots of eagles frequent the area.
I also saw no marmots or pikas all day.
Connection here?
Any ideas??

An inexpensive point and shoot was used, and things were happening real fast, so it's a little fuzzy...but this was the highlight of my day yesterday on California Peak.

This almost looks like what we affectionately call a "foxote" where I work. We have had them on our campus.....a mix of fox and coyote.

Foxes and coyotes do not cross breed. In fact coyotes kill foxes whenever they can. Coyotes will go after foxes' kits. I've seen it happen. That picture is one of a young coyote. If you are really having trouble with identification, you can use the eyes of both species to help. Foxes have cat like eyes. Coyotes have dog like eyes.

Thanks Sue, We came to the same conclusion with a discussion on Flickr. I have seen a coyote chasing a fox in our area and knew that it was a predator of fox. This "fox" is way larger than normal. It's the size of a fully grown coyote. :)

This summer was the first time I ran into a bear at Rocky Mountain National Park. Got this photo from about 100 feet away.
