Sweetwater Wetlands is probably the best birding spot in Tucson. However it is also the best place for a chance to see a Bobcat. We see a Bobcat on our property every 4-6 weeks; guests see a Bobcat every once in a while as well; and of course, Bobcats stroll through our property un-noticed.
Yet, lately it seems like I've come across a Bobcat at Sweetwater Wetlands at least two out of every three visits.
This past Wednesday was especially nice. Two young sibling Bobcats at play. Here is that series of photos:
|Minding his own business cleaning himself|
|Along comes his brother who wants to play|
|Oops, Mom's coming|
|Mom comes to make sure they are okay.|
|Is mom gone?|
|Yes, it's back to fighting|
|Just a quick peek at me|
|I'm just watching, not intruding|
|Back to fighting|
|I've had enough|
|One more peek at me|
|Think I'll go find something else to do|
|All over -- for now|
