Forest Service Sid showed me this photo (that he had sent to his phone) one morning in July after I had been on patrol. Hummingbird Bander Elissa recently sent it to me, as she got it from Rebecca the midwife (and hummingbird bander), who is a colleague of Robert the sonographer. How's that for complicated? (Looks like the same bobcat from Ned's later photos.) According to my sources, the rattler moved off. Skinny bobcat, perhaps, but still too big to eat. Thanks to everyone on this critter chain.
