While birding in Crowley Park after work, I was looking through my binoculars in the trees and heard a "mew" very close to me. This park is in a neighborhood so I thought someone's cat was out wandering the park. I did not see anything so continued birding. A few seconds later, I heard a "mew" again and now was determined to find this cat! I finally looked down a path into the woods and about 15' from me sat the bobcat. We stared at eachother for a good 2 min and it slowly wandered off. So cool! After I got home, I did an internet search for sounds they make (since it sounded SO much like a cat) & found nothing! It seems they so rarely make a sound, no one has captured it on audio yet. Sorry for the poor quality of my phone picture. It was a very cool encounter!

I was driving home, and saw a bobcat in the front yard of a neighbor's. I took video with my phone while in my truck. When I went down the street and came back down the alley toward my house, the bobcat wad in the back alley. It was between 7:35 & 7:38 pm. The bobcat crawled under the fence into the backyard of one of the houses. A bobcat had also been observed beneath the window in our kitchen by our the cats shrieking in the window earlier in the week.
