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.
We’ve switched one of our cameras to record video. We’re experimenting with the length of recording. Trying to figure out what’s the best compromise between capturing the action and saving on the battery life. It’s looking like 15 seconds might be the sweet spot. Here’s a compilation of interesting things that we saw in June. We’re […]
There are the usual things in the woods. The coyote has been seen on both cameras (video and still) and the bear is still around. Also the first pictures of Bucky. He’s got a nice thing going on with his antlers this year. And what will probably be the last mowing of the year for […]
Actually mountain lions and little tigers and of course the bears. Well the big predators are back. There’s about a 20 minute gap between the time the cougar showed up on the still camera by the manure pile and the time (he/she?) shows up on the video camera in the forest on the other side of […]
We have a fine looking buck on the property. The usual suspects — coyote, bear, and bobcat. And a first for us — a raccoon caught on the camera.
Winter was rather extreme this year. There was a lot of snow in February. We saw a lot of the coyotes. There seem to be three traveling together. Winter Later in the spring we see the first of the bear and more of the coyotes and raccoons. Early Spring
We saw a lot of the bobcat this month. Five separate appearances. The bear is definitely back in the woods. Also we did battle with the constantly growing greenery.
The June cameras caught our coyote pair cruising around. It’s also the season of young things. A nice run of video of a doe and her two fawns in our woods. We had a visit from a lady elk. Our first elk here in 20 years. Some weird bird artifacts from the driveway cam. A bonus […]
We moved a camera from the south side path which was having a good deal of trouble with the sun shining in it’s eye to the middle of the forest road. It caught some good stills for us. The cougar and the bear in particular.
