Dec 9 2013-First Day of Snow and First Pictures of a Bobcat

There was a report of a Snowy Owl at the Great Blue Heron Reserve in Chilliwack today.  An unusual location for this species but I thought I would check it out anyway as we were having our first day of snow for the year and it is always nice to walk on the fresh carpet.  Just as I was leaving the area I checked at the gift shop and the lady there asked if I had seen the Bobcat.  She told me it was present 15 minutes ago.  I went to look for the tracks and met some people who had seen  and photographed it.  We then saw it cross a pond on the ice.  I went to where I thought it might emerge and the following photos were the result.

One last look before it disappears.
There was no sign of the Snowy Owl but this was better.
