With the weather warming up, bobcat sightings are becoming more frequent in the Hudson Valley.

A day after a bobcat was spotted in Pound Ridge , Daily Voice reader Tommy Levy sent in several photos he had of bobcats in the woods of Mahopac and Carmel.

Levy, a hunter, attached two pictures from a trail camera he had set up, roaming in the woods at night. Levy said bobcats were plentiful in the Hudson Valley.

"They are nocturnal so not often seen by the average person," Levy said. "There is a hunting season for them because there is clearly an abundance of them in our area."

In February, a man in Fishkill spotted a bobcat in his backyard.
