Game Cameras — Highlights September

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 …

Wildlife on the Farm — April 2017

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 …
