I need to thank Mel's guy one more time...for without his donation last week of a beaver carcass, we would not be seeing all of this extra activity in our back yard. Look who wandered in late this afternoon, it's....
Mr. Bob, the bobcat, and he has grown.
He was here last year too. Now we wait, we wait to see if his mate shows up. She is more identifiable with her missing leg.
This fella does make me a bit nervous. He is not a bit afraid of us as we can walk out the door, talk to him, and he keeps on eating, keeping his guarded eye on us the entire time. These are not the most clear pics, cuz, me? I did NOT step out the door,....yet~but maybe tomorrow.
Also, much to my delight, Eagle Eye the Bald Eagle returned. He faithfully shows up around noon and stays a couple of hours.
Today was an extra treat, as a couple of the grandsons were here and got to see Eagle Eye and Mr. Bob for the first time. They could not believe how big they were. They thought they were both pretty cool.

My camera wasn't quick enough, but at least I got a pretty good shot of him taking off. What a powerful bird. This picture is blurred but I can almost count his feathers.
Did I set the camera up yet, you ask? No! I've had a cold and just feeling a bit 'off' still, so I haven't set up the trail camera. It's supposed to be minus -20 to -30 below tonight, but I still plan to step out tomorrow and set up the camera at the corner of the woodshed to get more clear and closer looks at these wonders of the forest and sky., just for you.
Stay Warm, Safe, Dry and most of all
