Indigo Bunting, Great Blue Heron, and Coyote

This female Indigo Bunting was hunting bugs (a katydid?) and doing her best to keep my attention. She must have had a nest near by. I thought I had some rare grassland sparrow until I got a closer look. I don't see the females very often, as the more striking males get my attention. Well this little bird made up for it, give me lots of time to watch her as she stayed just a short distance in front of me as I walked along the berm.

A Great Blue Heron flew over:

A coyote was sauntering across the field off in the distance when something got his attention:
