July 10, 2007 – DAFB

No best bird of the day; all recorded are the usual breeders. However, the bobcat that walked out of the high grass ten feet in front of me was a pretty good find. He sauntered out from the six-foot forbes where I had just been checking a nestbox. I think I roused him from his morning nap.
