It's been an interesting winter in the desert. Weather patterns seem to change every five to seven years, with the critters following along behind. With so much water falling from the sky, they don't stop in for a drink quite as often.
Every few years also bring new leaders and new packs of coyotes to the table. I didn't think their territories changed quite so often, but apparently they do.
This video ... you'll have to look very closely in the middle as it plays. Look for the shiny eye. I've never seen these guys before, and only caught one on video. I do however, see the holes they dig all around the property.
