Clean Water and Predators
James is holding a heavy rock he got out of the branch that had Spring Lizard eggs under it. We placed it back like it was so the eggs could hatch. We have found lots of eggs in the branch and it is full of Spring Lizards. They say this is a sign of clean water. The majority of the people in Clay County get their water from this stream. On to another story....
Coyote scat. We are having a problem with coyotes on our property. We try to remove all we can but just last week we looked at pictures on our game cameras and one camera had the pictures of three different coyotes. What is the significance of the above picture? The scat has deer fawn hair all in it. They are the number one predator for whitetail deer fawns. We are going to have to up our pressure on these destructive coyotes.
