We had our first local bobcat sighting on today's ride. Unfortunately, he (or she) moved into scrub before I could take a picture. It was about 2.5 miles from our home, so we'll be keeping our eyes open for this bobcat in the future. In case you've never seen a bobcat, here's a picture from the web. It's size, tufted ears, and shortish tail make it very different from a common house cat.
