Still recovering from my stay in the hospital, I was walking around the neighborhood to soak in some sun. As I made my way up 231st Ln NE I noticed a murder of crows making a big fuss over something. I turned down the hill at NE Devon Way and the noise increased. As I approached Morgan Drive I knew there was something wrong. The crows would not stop their noise making. I turned north on Morgan Drive. As I approached the wetlands just north of Peggy’s house I saw the problem. There were 1, 2 no 3 bobcats lounging in the trees. This was my first sighting of a bobcat here at Trilogy, so I called Lyn to bring me my camera and binoculars. Soon she came jogging up the hill. The cats were deep in the shade but I was able to get a few photos. They seemed to be having a very relaxing afternoon despite the ruckus of the crows.
After alerting two sets of neighbors, we decided to retreat to our house. On the way back we noticed another carnivore, a Cardinal Meadowhawk (small orange dragonfly). These dragonflies, especially the males, tend to pick a perch and stay there. Some will return to the same perch day after day.
That was enough excitement for one day. Back to my Sci-Fi novel.
