A large cat (bobcat or lynx?) visits my SB creekside garden occasionally.
This still is from early this morning (Sunday)

All Bobcats are Lynx, but not all Lynx are Bobcats.
So, in this case, calling it either one is technically correct.
Beautiful healthy looking cat! So nice to see this.
Lynx, as we think of them (not to be confused with our local Bobcats), reside in the northernmost parts/forests of USA : Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, Maine and with a smattering of 100 or less individuals recorded in Washington state = Canadian lynx: Lynx canadensis. There are Lynx in Canada with Europe and Asia hosting other species of Lynx. The European Lynx is the largest of the Lynx family, topping out (weight) at around 64 lbs and are known to bring down smaller deer, among other prey.
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing the videos.
What trail camera did you use?
You are so lucky! The shot from 9/12 with the bobcat’s eyes all a glow. OMG
Allllll wonderful. Thx!!
OP here. Glad you like the bobcat. He (or she) first came to the cameras in early July. Two photogenic coyotes also stopped in around the same time. They'll be back.
The trail cams I use are called "GardePro A3 Trail Camera 20MP". About $70 each.
I got one in May, and another just like it in June. The garden gets skunks and possums almost every night, and occasional big predators. I'll post good ones when they arrive.
SO COOL, Beachcomber!!! I have got to get some trail cams for our yard! I love our wild neighbors.
