Sweetwater Wetlands - Bobcat

12/17/21

As I mentioned in my other Sweetwater Wetlands galleries from this winter, the wildlife activity had declined from previous years. The same applied to my bobcat sightings. In previous years, I would see a bobcat every two or three visits. This year, I only saw a bobcat on my first visit. I heard that there are four of them hanging out in the wetlands. But I was obviuosly coming at the wrong times.

The one time I saw a bobcat, it appeared that it had just been in the water. So I photographed it for about 15-20 minutes as it bathed itself. As you can see from the photos, a bobcat acts just like a really big house cat.
