This fellow was likely returning from a night's hunting when I saw him about 9 am on the trail ahead of me. I followed him for a while, until the animal turned uphill, probably to a den.

This scat continues fur and a fragment of bone, the tibial plateau (knee joint) of a medium sized mammal (skunk, fox, or raccoon). I think it is coyote, but I am not good at scat ID

Description

I have visited this place often over the last 20 years. The death of these hemlocks at about 3500' is nearly complete. They die from the top down, loosing branches. The dead trunks remain upright for many years. The river, this far up stream is less shaded and the ecosystem is changed.

This hawk has spent much of the winter in this tree. I photographed the bird this morning just as dawn was breaking. The bird flew off to hunt (Squirrels and Koi) just after this photo. I have not seen another bird paired, or any nesting activity

Description

Unlike the red tailed hawk that I posted on 31 Jan 2014; this hawk is captive. He is trained in falconry, and this shot was taken while he was hunting. Falconers around the state (VA) report a marked decrease in squirrels, those remaining are smarter.
