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)
this is our owl landing
taking off again
The usual crowd was also around. Coyote, bobcat, deer, and a bunny. No sign of the bears in the middle of the winter.
looking pretty good for January
little rabbit, better look out
the bobcat is also here
and a nice shot of the coyote — a big boy for sure
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 getting some interesting things. Starting with a bit of video one of the bears climbing the trial up the hill. Then a look at one of our fat and sassy coyotes. Bucky makes a late night visit. Midday we see the rather adorable dog that lives down the hill. And finally, the catch of the month: the local owl enjoying a bit of breakfast.
Here’s a better look at the bear. This is the small one. I think the one in the video above is the big one.
Bonus Video of Bob the Cat.
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 the forest road.
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 the property. Walked right past the pastured animals. The smaller cat is the bobcat with little rabbit snack. And of course our big lumbering bear.
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.
