Look Who I Saw This Morning!
Spotting a Bobcat at Green Cay Wetlands in Boynton Beach is always a treat. If you keep your eyes open, you might just see one or two waiting to give you a glimpse. I saw this friendly guy this morning on our walk.
The Bobcat, a smaller cousin to the Lynx, is thankfully a protected species and was placed on the list of endangered species in 1991. We usually have 3 ways of noting their presence here on the boardwalk:
1. A particular scarceness of marsh hare.
2. The" calling cards" they leave on the boardwalk.
3. A visual siting of them
In colder months, we can sometimes see them peeking out from the tall grass to get a little sun and warmth. You have to be stealth if you want to catch a glimpse of one of these. And when you do, be very quiet and enjoy the view.
