I took the wife to pick out plants, and they had Solar hummingbirds in their potted plants. My Wife's first thought was "The cat will be on that in a heart beat!" My first thought was "That would make a great coyote decoy. Its simple, colorful, and has just the right motion!

 Amazon has them 1 for $10 or 3 for $20. I ordered the 3 pack! DR

I suspect they will work okay. It seems like small movements are more attractive to coyotes than big one, which stands to reason.

 That's what I like most about them! its just a fluttering motion, not something spinning!  and its very random. DR

I think that would be much better.

 Between the house chores and weather I have not gotten to try one yet.  But it catches and holds the attn of the wife's cats! I'm going to get out with one of the sons on the 18th.  DR

I stuck mine in a flower planter on the deck. Squirrels chewed the head off it right away. Then the solar stopped working. It probably still works on battery power, haven't tried it.

 I did try it a couple times! it was too small to be real effective. so I added a large feather to it! and I set it up higher! So far with the feather it seems to hold the coyotes attn. I'm 2 for 3 coyotes called in! The third came in close but was able to keep behind brush and rocks till it was close enough to see it was a decoy! DR
