RavensHarassingBobcat Part II


The raven parents continue pursuing the bobcat that emerges from the trees at the top of the cliff. They harass it, even landing close and flying at it, to encourage it to leave the area where their fledglings are located. This is a large bobcat, clearly an adult. When the bobcat climbs down to the bottom of the cliffs and disappears into the trees, one raven parent continues to keep watch from a nearby tree while the other parent returns to the cliff ledge several hundred feet away where the 2 fledglings are safely located.
