Bobcats hunt rodents in grassy meadows on the Mendonoma Coast.

It is said Bobcats are nocturnal but they are often seen in the daylight here on the Coast. Siegfried Matull recently photographed a Bobcat on the hunt, with one paw up in the air. Looks like the cat with the tufted ears and bobbed tail has found a tasty rodent.

And the Bobcat was successful, nabbing a Vole.

Here is one of my favorite Bobcat photos, also taken by Siegfried.

Bobcats are year round residents of the Mendonoma Coast and they bring a touch of wild nature into our lives.

Thanks to Siegfried for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
