Maybe it's this moon.
Watching an old video tonight, Kiss Me Kate, Keenan Winn and James Whitmore doing the soft-shoe tap dancing scene and singing, 'Brush Up Your Shakespeare'. All the windows open, curtains pulled, when a coyote howled almost under the window, certainly in the front yard. Threw the cats into a panic, them going to catnap to get-outta-downrange-of-that-booger faster than I can tell it.
Not sure whether the coyote was just commenting on Winn and Whitmore, or whether it was something more fundamental to the film.
Shortly afterward the largest coyote concert I've ever heard began up on the mesa to the west. Lots of spring pups solidly into adulthood now.
I'm thinking bro coyote's going to make a powerful nuisance of himself this winter.
