“A View From The Bridge”, by Charles Wood


Tuesday at 8:15 pm my view from the bridge was two young coyotes passing through the underpass headed south.  Of course they spotted me.  They stopped to look.  Looking, they moved from side to side and at angles that moved them further away.   Soon they took to the brush and my flashlight’s reflection from their eyes gave me their positions.  After several minutes they were gone.

Wednesday I returned to perhaps catch young coyotes heading towards the underpass from the north side.  None showed up.  I arrived earlier than on the previous evening.  I walked towards the bridge on the north side of the street.  At about 7 pm Mom, in her field on the south side, spotted me.  There wasn’t much of me to see given her angle of view.  Yet still, she followed me as I walked east towards the bridge.  When I arrived at the bridge she had approached it to get a better look at me.  After a couple of minutes she left.  At 9 pm I left having not seen any other coyotes.
