Packs And Loners, by Barbara Levine

My kitchen window faces a wooded area and I am frequently visited by coyotes, usually one at a time, occasionally 2 at a time, and once I saw 5 together. I also have an abundance of deer, wild turkeys, and quail which is probably the reason for the increasing coyote sightings.

A strange occurance happened a few weeks ago which I thought you might find interesting. A flock of 20-25 turkeys were in the meadow behind my house when a single coyote strolled by. To my amazement, the turkeys formed a circle around the coyote and the coyote climbed up a low branch on a tree and stayed there until the turkeys started to move on. He then came down and headed away from them and the turkeys followed him. I stood there watching until they all disappeared down the hill.

      Yes, and it becomes understandable after seeing the youtube video of the turkey attacking the mail truck, posted several days ago!
