Watching The Ducks Overhead

A flock of ducks passed overhead and I watched it across the entire skyline. A coyote I had seen not too far off also had stopped its activity to observe the same sight, raising its head and fixing its gaze on the arcing flight of birds.

We both stayed there watching until the birds were no longer in sight, and then continued what we had been doing before we saw them: me, watching the coyote, and the coyote hunting.

Coyotes are as curious and as interested in their surroundings as we are. I frequently see them watching simply to see what is going on. I felt “connected” to have shared the same awareness as a little wild coyote had.
