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.…
You may need to look hard to see the little fellow who showed up more than any other animal in the last set of trail camera photos.
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 (?)
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.
This photo was taken this morning with a zoom lens. They were headed right to the one of the trail cameras, so there will likely be more photos of these two in the July collection.
