Who else?


Well possums, your guesses are all reasonable.

Bobcats would certainly cruise for wood rats and bunnies, as proffered by Doug and Desert Nutmeg, but neither showed up at set 312.

No hikers, either, Doug.

And coyotes definitely frequent the haunts of bobcats and vice versa.

In fact, one yodeler, seen above, did make a fleeting appearance just before noon on December 5th.

So Owlman and Randontruth actually picked a species that made a showing.

But Coyote wasn't a heavy user of the gulch.

Beep beep -- tomorrow night I'll post the answer.

Based on this post and the terrain I am going to go with Roadrunner

having gleaned the sum total of all my roadrunner knowledge from the looney tunes i thought they preferred flatter terrain? - Owen

Owlman said...

Definitely Roadrunner ("beep-beep")
if that was a clue or are you trying to through us off?

True, Owen, you expect them in flat terrain, but the camera trap always gives us a few surprises. I didn't expect them there either.
