    I've been watching the videos of Eagles nesting, Lucy and Larry.
    And a mama bear with twins... I didn't get a lot done, with those twins running around and their mom sleeping....

    Thank God for the nature he give us to enjoy!

    I had not seen a bobcat in years. One night I was driving late and with in about 90 miles I saw two. It was pretty cool.

    We have racoons, possums, bobcats and foxes and this is in a highly populated area between Fort Worth and Dallas. I guess they adapt to us invading their territory...but we do have to watch out for our dogs and cats. The bobcat and foxes kill them.Our neighbor let her little dog out to do this thing and a large hawk swooped down and took him away. Other neighbors have had cyotes stalking their pets.....Our ranch in west Texas is a pleasant place to watch wildlife....except for the rattle snakes and the critter in the attached pictures...killed north of our ranch.

    We have possums, moles, squirrels and an occasional raccoon. But in Bellingham a deer will often wander into town.

    We have one too. Several sightings. I didn't believe it until I saw it myself. Now I keep the camera and telephoto lens handy, but I'll probably never see it again.

    I remember when I still lived on the western slope, a few years back and they were trying to transplant bobcats in the Vail are, I think. The first few years, they didn't do well, but some must have survived and even thrived if they made it as far down as Canon City.

    I just heard on the radio that a bobcat, I forget where, is wandering a neighborhood.... bit one lady on the leg and moved on to two puppies in a garage. They are beautiful but dangerous, since they are not afraid of humans.

    We have one or more? nearby. I saw him one night crossing the highway just as I was nearing our drive. I saw him again--or maybe another one-- running across the highway in front of my car when I was about 5 miles from home last night. We also have a panther (cougar) in the area. I've seen him only once, but others have seen him too.

    When my granddaughter was visiting when she was 3, we were in the yard when I heard rustling in the leaves beside our drive. I signaled her with my finger to my lips to be quiet. A very young fawn stepped out into our drive. She yelled out, "Bambi! It's Bambi!" Of course it disappeared immediately back into the woods. For weeks after she returned home, she told everyone she saw that she saw Bambi at her Mil's (her name for me) house, and he lives in her woods.

    I think I now can post a picture of the BIG cat that was killed north of our ranch in west Texas. It was spotted the day before, dragging a cow off. (No Texas tale) as you can see by the photo, not a cat you would like to greet you out walking.

    Wow! I didn't know they can get this big! That paw is amazing. The one I saw in my area (central LA) was just a little pussy cat in comparison--still big enough to be something I don't want to meet when taking my walks in the woods. If I saw one like the one in the picture, he wouldn't have to kill me. I'd probably die of a heart attack before he could pounce.
