Bobcat Checking Road Before Kitten Crosses

It sure seems like this Bobcat is checking to see if the road is safe for her kitten to cross. She stands on the road for a couple of minutes before going back into the brush and coming back out with the kitten.

A Bobcat Taking A Break

Bobcat Stalking Birds

I spotted this Bobcat stalking birds at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I watched it for a long time to see if it would catch one. It never did while I was watching.

A Bobcat I Spotted While Walking

I was walking at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma when I spotted a Bobcat coming out of a soybean field. This was around 7:30 in the morning (August 26, 2018). I have seen a Bobcat and a Coyote in this area twice. I was walking one of the dirt roads that you can’t drive on but you can walk. It saw me as soon as it stepped out of the soybean field. It stood and watched me for several minutes and I got several photos.

I read that Bobcat activities are well-defined territories, which vary in size depending on the sex and the distribution of prey. They mark the home range with feces, urine scent, and by clawing prominent trees in the area. I have seen lots of these signs in this area and thought I may get lucky and see one.
