The blue jay gangs are large and vigilant this time of year. I couldn't figure out exactly what they were monitoring but it was getting them riled up. Here is the pre-attack chorus, half-a dozen blue jays in the same tree top (plus an alarmed robin). I really like the musical patterns here.
And a daylight hooting great horned owl, someplace in the woods (I tried to triangulate but I couldn't catch sight of it).
And this evening while Lily and I were leaving the community garden, a howling coyote.
