Bobcat and Weasel

Sounds like the title for a children’s book – one that could be written here at the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve.  These animals are spotted every now and then and its always a thrill.  This last June, a bobcat was spotted walking past the picnic tables and into the woods.  That same month a young Long-tailed Weasel ran past the visitor center and disappeared into a hole in the ground.
