We moved that cameras back in early May and are now seeing different things. Lots of predators wandering around the forest.
One camera is located at the end of what we call the forest road, the wide path that runs parallel to the property line in the woods. The other is on a small trail behind the manure pile that leads to the neighbor’s driveway. This is the one that I thought might show us the transiting coyotes and help pin point their den. But now I“m not at all sure. There is a lot more coyote activity on the forest road camera.
Going for a walk
We’re wondering about how many coyotes there are and whether or not we can identify them. In particular are the coyote above and this one below the same animal? We’ve had pictures of two together in the past. And the one below looks heavier set than the one above.
In fact this round we have collected the full set of predators.

This is not the cougar that we’ve seen before. This one doesn’t have a collar. So there may be two working overlapping territories here.
And perhaps a bit frightening… our neighbor walking her dog. Check out the time stamp — compare it with the one on the cougar pic above.
Yipes, look at the time stamp.
And some things can’t be identified other than a pair of glowing eyes in the night.
Then there’s the usual suspect. The Big G out for a stroll.

Jim has, of course, spent some time in the woods this spring. Here he is “road testing” the big dual sport bike before a back country adventure in BC.
That’s a big orange bike!
And mowing, because it’s spring and the mowing never seems to end.

And here we are — walking up to change the cards in one of the cameras.

And because there is always one accidentally arty shot.
