I saw a bobcat tonight as I walked across the grounds. It crossed the road in front of me within the sphere of a floodlight. I have seen the signs of its comings and goings many times, but it was a treat to see it in the flesh. Sometimes after it snows I'll find a delicate line of its tracks linking their way between our buildings, and once I found a perfect set of its tracks pressed into the soft mud under the willows down by the stream. More often there are no tracks, but just a scattering of feathers or tufts of rabbit fur, but tonight our paths intersected. It was awesome!
