Went to the 196th ave levee this am in hopes to see the ever elusive bobcats, with Barbara. Not only did we not see bobcats we saw not much of anything . Except a deer ass running as fast as he could from us. the pictures posted are about the only things seen except a brown trasher, who didn't want his picture taken and a Great Egret who came out blurry. Didn't want to bore you with that. Oh I almost forgot about the alligator. Not a piece of wood. LOL to desperate eyes it was kind of exciting. Next time a new approach at dusk not dawn lawn chairs and wine. we will let them come to us and if they don't maybe we wont care. Lol we will

CSI   footprint could it be a bobcat?

Very young red bellied woodpecker

As equally respected the Bluejay

Had a great day birding and exploring with Barbara. Hit the bird jackpot as far as I am concerned. Thanks to the young set of eyes she found me a owl to photograph. My only owl siting was several weeks ago as it flew by us to fast for cameras to be ready.( remember spooky old barn blog). We followed this owl from tree to tree as he tried to escape out lens's, but at last pictures. Yea for us. To bad Cindy couldn't be here to see this, but she was having her own adventure in Ga. I'm sure she will blog about it upon returning home. Hint hint it growls.
