KnollsCam: Crows warn, bobcat flushes deer

The latest installment of Thomas Brass's KnollsCam in the woods atop Haywood Knolls is a tale of three species.

"Prowling bobcat scatters a herd of deer!" is the title of the video, which runs a minute and 52 seconds. According to Brass's account of the wildlife, crows in the distance alerted to the bobcat on the prowl. The frantic cawing signaled to the deer that they'd better move uphill to avoid a downhill ambush by the predator, Brass says. They scamper away. Four minutes later, a lone bobcat comes into view.
