Sunflower seed top left for perspective.

Using that sunflower seed in the top left corner for scale, and if that scat is as dark as it looks on my screen...I'd guess Bobcat.
Can't make out what's in the scat, got a better photo?

That’s the only picture available. I don’t know for sure what it’s from.

Initially I thought that it was black bear scat but relative to the sunflower seed it seems a bit small to me. Other than that, it is definitely consistent with being black bear scat.

Am I out to lunch thinking that this may be skunk scat?

Coyotes like to eat chokecherries this time of year too. Looks like it could be chokecherry scat. Maybe racoon or otter on a long shot.
