Another chamois capture - this time i got a good shot at a group of this year's kids.
At the moment i really like to do a little detour early in the morning, when i go for my cameratraps at the weekends. It is so fun watching them. .

After long 11 months one of my scouting camera finally captured another eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx). Unfortunately this lynx, identified as B622, didn't pass my dslr cameratrap. This young one from last year is obviously searching for a territory. The gender is not known yet but the chances, that this lynx stays here in this area i guess would be much higher, if it is a female, as there are already 2 strong males around here. I really hope that this lynx find its territory, as the first months after they leave their mother are the toughest. 🐆

At the moment i am scouting for possible eurasian lynx cameratrap locations, every free time i have. While scouting, the chamois is the one mammal i almost see every day. As the chamois is together with the roe deer the main prey of the eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) it is a good sign. At this time of the year, the chamois are having their rutting season and they are quite "busy" and don't take notice of me - so it is a really good time for photographing them.

This morning, i finally found some time to scout for new locations for my DSLR cameratrap. While scouting for animal trails, i came across a small herd of chamois.

Flashback to California: After our return back home i didn‘t had much time for wildlife yet but still like to think back to my very first Bobcat i saw.

Unfortunately we are back home 😉 - During our visit in the Point reyes national seashore we could watch 3 coyotes trying to hunt a calf. One of them tried to distract the mother cows, while the other 2 tried to catch the calf - but they weren't really sucessful because it had too many mother cows, protecting their calves.

We really had to earn this sighting - In the last 3 days we hiked over 40 kilometers with our 12 kilogram photo backpack and heavy tripod to look for a Bobcat.Finally yesterday morning we could find one.Unfortunately it was quite foggy from the nearby ocean to get a proper capture and this Bobcat was extremly shy and walked into the tall grass to hide.Nevertheless we are very happy about this encounter 🐱

We are back in northern California and looking for Bobcats again.So far we haven't found one yet again - somehow we are often followed by these little sparrows - the white-crowned sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys) and that's why i needed a picture of it 😊

Because we drove much further down the californian coastline we unfortunately didn't had much time for wildlife watching.I think a lot about my bobcat encounter of last week - it was one of my most intense, moving wild cat encounter in my life.

We had a wonderful Monday morning with @blueoceanwhalewatch in the Monterey Bay - thank you so much for this awesome, educational trip 😊 - We saw a lot of humpback whales and californian sea lions. The most impressed i was by the fact that sea lions and humpback whales form hunting coalition. It was beautiful to see them hunt together the anchovies and sometimes it looked as if the sea would boil 🐋 - Great experience 😊

Besides the already sighted animals, day 3 brought us again some new species - Some of them we couldn't capture with our cameras (Birds of prey mainly), but some were very kind to be photographed by us 😄:
.
1. North american river otter (Lutra canadensis)
2. Striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis)
3. Sonoma Chipmunk (Tamias sonomae)
.
Unfortunately we have to leave this beautiful place today and we will head down south to the Monterey bay and we hope to watch some marin mammals.
