When I opened the back door, the coyote jumped up and over the fence in a single bound. I understand all about survival of the fittest and all but I was relieved I didn't see the coyote get the quail chicks. There have been six little chicks and their parents tooling about our yard for a few weeks... Here are the parents back at their posts after all the commotion. The dad quail.
The mom quail.
We saw all the chicks and the parents zipping around the yard later in the afternoon. :)
