October 15, 2013 (Descanso) – Debbie Ekhaml had just finished a horseback ride near Descanso and was eating lunch shortly after noon recently when a surprise visitor emerged. 

“This beautiful male Bobcat appeared and caught a gopher while we quietly sat under an oak and watched,” she told ECM. “ He hung around for about 50 minutes and tried to get a second one (unsuccessfully).  We were amazed not only to get to watch him, but to see him hunt in the middle of the day!”

PHOTO OF THE WEEK: BOBCAT IN EL MONTE VALLEY

March 9, 2012 (Lakeside) – Most every day I like to drive down El Monte Rd in Lakeside. It reminds me of how it used to be in the old days with wide open fields, some farming and the best part is all the wildlife in the area--golden eagles, hawks and falcons, wild turkeys, deer and every once in a while a mountain lion or a bobcat.

July 29, 2011 (Anza Borrego) -- Daren Sefcik captured this rare image of a bobcat peering out of a rocky cave at Potrero Canyon in Anza-Borrego, a remote location accessible only by foot or by horse. 

 

 

"I went out hiking the canyon to try and reach the base of Stephenson Peak," Sefcik said. "About a mile from the base on the mountain, I stopped to eat some lunch and I noticed a black silhouette of what looked like a Batman head in some rocks. With a 300mm zoom on my lens I was able to see a bobcat."
