The following is an article written by Jeanne Jackson for her blog Mendonoma Sightings where she documents the wildlife, the land, and the waters of our coast.
Bobcats, the cat with tufted ears and short, bobbed tails can sometimes be seen in grassy meadows. Mike Reinhart spotted one looking at him through the grasses at the Point Arena-Stornetta Lands.
Fun Fact: the markings on a Bobcat’s coat are unique to itself, just like our fingerprints!
Thanks to Mike for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
The weather is…well…it’s perfect! Yesterday Humpback Whales were seen. There are quite a few Humpbacks off the Mendonoma Coast right now. By the beginning of November they will be migrating southward and we won’t likely see them until next summer. Get to a bluff near you!
