Bobcat Lynx rufus

Description

Cool, cloudy, rainy morning (9:00 a.m.). Shocked to see a very large (approx. 40"+) bobcat patrolling slowly along the inside fence of our small suburban backyard,not 30 feet from the breakfast table window. It stalked through some perimeter shrubs, up and around the spa area (didn't take a drink)and pool , and finally easily jumped back over the 7-8' stockade fence. Sadly, we weren't able to get a photo, but got a very good, longish, close look. Markings were muted, and color appeared somewhat more grey than brown. Seemed very well fed (bulkier than some photos) I was surprised that it would have made a (blind) jump over a tall fence into a small backyard --appeared comfortable hunting in this environment (has it been through before...?).

Probably the same Bobcat I photographed two days ago in a tree near my house. Seem to be frequent visitors these days.

This little bird was hiding in our holly bushes, being mobbed by a bunch of jays. What kind of owl is it?

The bobcat was crouched on the neighbors roof looking into our back yard. I was alerted to the bobcat by crows that were circling above and squawking very loudly. We have birds that

nest in trees in our back yard and squirrels that are frequently seen on the fence and in the trees. After about one minute the bobcat appeared annoyed. It stood up and growled several

times as it turned around and walked back over the neighbors roof line and out of site.

I've only ever seen Ruddy Ducks in large flocks. This one was pretty much by itself, occasionally in the company of a Pied Billed Grebe. I could not see the distinctive tail at all.

Not the best photo, it happened really fast, however if you look near the bottom of the vehicle you can see the tail and hind leg. This was taken at Stonebriar Mall in Frisco.
