Our new next-door neighbor sent me a video, this morning. I replied to her email that while Hunky Husband sees a fox around here every once-in-a-while, I thought that I had only seen one, once. She replied: "That wasn't a fox!!!! It's a bobcat." She included stills (that, I assume, were culled from the video). How could I not have noticed the absence of a long, bushy tail? (In the one "pose" it looks more like a monkey!)

If you didn't recognize the birds: the trill was that of a Carolina wren while the call was that of a Northern cardinal.
