More Bobkittens!

For the third year in a row, a set of three bobcat kittens have been photographed romping in front of the trail cam. The last sign of a bobcat prior to the appearance of the kittens was in April (see snowy shot below). Then the scene was relatively quiet for months…just birds, deer, rabbits, mice……


Here is backyard documentation of what I have read many times and seen over the years: that Great Horned Owls and Red Tailed Hawks can share territory.

The area these photos are taken is often referred to as a “wildlife corridor.” This term seems apt since so many different types of animals move through with no one staying too terribly long. This set of shots shows quite a coyote phase. Check out the photos of bobcat on the hunt at the end.…

Look who else is on the scene…

I’m pretty sure this is a male bobcat. (Right Pablo? Anyone?) Maybe he sired this year’s bobkittens! Not just one… Three! Mama’s with them. Magnificent! And another baby: Plus, this mama + baby duo is still around: And, maybe is this one of last year’s kittens (?)

Ode to mother’s milk

Precious to see a doe and her fawn together… …and nursing! Then just about 10 minutes later, the trail cam captured this series of photos… …so clearly illustrating the splendid power of mother’s milk.
