Giving birth
A Matter of Life and Death
The pronghorn mother and the coyote

June 15, 2016

A pronghorn doe in the process of giving birth found herself having to face off against a coyote laying in wait. We observed the unfolding scene and peril while on a drive down Paradise Road near Boulder on Sunday morning, June 12th. She charges the hovering predator and it runs. The scene unfolds over just a couple short minutes. We donít know the end of this story. They both ran off over a hill out of sight.

A second danger
This magpie is as much a threat as the coyote. They are notorious for swooping in on newborn wildlife and calves and pecking their eyes out.
