Mariah Myers, expert in animal ecology and wildlife care, shared this report: "I took my dog on a walk this afternoon at Frautschi Point and while on the "Big Oak Trail" we came across a nature crime scene involving many feathers, some lovely entrails and a raptor foot! There were many many animal tracks in the vicinity, most of which were rabbit, squirrel and other small rodents. I did see what appeared to be coyote/fox tracks but the area was too chopped up from all the activity to tell exactly "who done it".
Anyway, I've attached a few pictures. Nothing too graphic just some of the feathers and a close up of the foot. Any help with ID is welcome." Please help us identify the raptor by submitting your comments.
