We got a new sighting on the cameras. The owl. He’s a big guy and we hear him almost every night. He’s also taken a chicken or two. (harumph) The usual crowd was also around. Coyote, bobcat, deer, and a bunny. No sign of the bears in the middle of the winter.
… and pretty much no one else. We’ve had only a little bit of snow so far this winter. The deer don’t seem to mind. Gizmo was ecstatic. The buck is back and looking better than ever. Lots of other pictures of deer browsing and what not. Mostly in the early evening. But there aren’t any pictures […]
Not much to see this month we had a couple of cameras run out of battery unexpectedly. So there’s just these couple of images. No idea if the bears are still around. I’d like to put my bird feeders out soon. But may wait until the middle of the month and check that cameras one […]
The month started with some really lovely summer weather. The deer are appearing; some looking better than others. There’s still one speckled fawn — but there isn’t a decent picture of him/her. The coyotes are still around. Nothing of them on the driveway this month. But they made the other two cameras. Only one bear sighting. I’m […]
It’s been a hot, dry August. And the creatures are very active in the woods. The coyotes are sticking to the path at the bottom of the pasture. Oops, that’s not a coyote. Ollie on the move. The deer have been scarce. This is one of the few pictures I’ve gotten. She looks well fed, but […]
First up we have the bear. He’s been seen a lot lately — including destroying some of the neighbor’s bird feeders. In this picture I can’t be entirely sure that it’s our bear and not a smaller one. The scale is hard to judge. Next we have a couple of the coyote. Singles only this time. Not sure […]
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 […]
The first real month of spring — as evidenced by the visitor in our first picture. The robins are back and hopping around the pasture looking for worms. This fellow was looking to land on the fence post that the camera is mounted on. And they coyotes are showing themselves regularly both at night and during the day. The […]
We’ve got a new camera on the farm and I’m working out the kinks in my fingers — they still remember the old camera… Today I took some pictures around the farm.
Not so much on the cameras this month. The deer are walking around in groups again. Three mostly. I haven’t seen any sign of the buck or his antlers since December. I was hoping to get the antlers for the dog to chew on. The predators have been out at night. Coyotes both on the lower pasture […]
