Hello, all. I am new to mammal watching and this site.
I am going to southeast South Carolina in mid-June this year (I will be based on Hilton Head Island), and although primarily a birding trip and also a trip to see family, I would like to see a few mammals while there. I have a list below of ones I would like to try to see; and I wondered if anyone could point me to the best time of day and location for each one, and the likelihood of seeing it at that time and location. Preferably the locations would be as close as possible to Hilton Head Island.
Bobcat–I know they are on Kiawah Island in a high density. Can someone give me more specific info?
Eastern River Otter
Any bat roosts, although I am particularly interested in seeing Rafinesque’s big-eared bat and Southeastern Myotis.
Strand feeding Bottlenose Dolphins
All help is appreciated greatly.
