This morning I looked out onto the patio and saw a juvenile bobcat walking away. I opened the door and made some clicking sounds, which on this occasion caused the bobcat to turn around and come back toward the patio. As the bobcat and I were examining each other, a Gamble’s quail flew onto the patio and landed right in front of the bobcat! A second or so later, the bobcat had the quail captured and in its mouth (photo above; quail’s head is pointing downward).
