RFI – Bobcat in Late August early September at Sweetwater Wetlands Tucson
We have had to postpone a trip to Java and Sumatra for the 3rd year, Indonesia at the moment only letting foreign visitors into Bali and at least some of the National Parks e.g. Way Kambas, are still completely closed.
Our “back-up” trip is Arizona, mainly to look for Bobcat at Sweetwater Wetlands.
In Charles Hood’s report dated 5.7.20 he mentioned that:
“Bobcats are more weekly than daily, with September supposedly better”
However in a post dated 7.3.21 Charles said:
“My brother lives in Tucson and as of 04 March 2021 is now at exactly 50% success rate for bobcats in 2021. He has seen them 14 times and missed them 14 times.”
This has led us to wonder whether we would be better looking for an alternative option for our late August early September trip and look for Bobcat in Sweetwater in the January to March range.
We intend to devote 6 days looking for Bobcat.
If anyone has any thoughts/views on this, we would be very grateful hear them.
