Default Bobcats!

I have seen bobcats several times over the last week, and late afternoon today saw two at the same time. A little research indicates this is mating season so perhaps the couple today will have some offspring in May.

Default Apparently Coyotes too...

....the Mrs saw on a local FB page on Saturday that Coyotes are out looking for action this time of year as well, and since hormones are raging, keep an eye on your dogs and cats, so they don't become a snack.

Not sure where they are hiding this year! I usually see a lot of deer and coyote tracks on the snowmobile trails in the middle of night especially up on Red Hill. I still see tons of deer, bedding areas, and tracks but no 'yotes! Though there are some talented coyote hunters in town!

Had a big and fast bobcat go right through my backyard late morning a few days ago. I was on a call but snagged a quick picture. Uploading it won't be a big benefit since it was a live photo on an iphone and to actually see him you need to see the live image. Pretty wild though!

Pics or it didn't happen!

I have been able to duplicate a "live" picture then modify it to remove the "live" attribute.

I think you may also be able to pic an individual frame and make that its own picture.

Never saw one before a couple days ago when my Arlo cam videoed one walking across my yard. I tried to upload it here, but could not. I was surprised at how small it was and with a bobbed tail. Looked like a house cat on steroids.

If I saw one in the wild, I wouldn't run away, but I wouldn't try and pet it either.

Now, a mountain lion would be another matter...

PM me and I'd be happy to send it via text message. I'm a dinosaur when it comes to technology...even being a millennial

Believe I saw one the other evening crossing Long Island Road. Short sighting but as described by someone else on this forum it looked like a house cat on steroids.
