Recent Trailcam captures: wild turkeys, raccoons, coyotes, bucks

After weeks of nothing on the trailcam, I have some critters to show. You need not watch the video, I know many haven't time, but for those who like to watch wild critter behaviour, here you go!
Last week, I managed a trailcam video of a doe and fawn (it does 30-sec. videos).

Bless their little hearts eating the bugs in the meadow!
Afterwards, hubby spotted them in the backyard, up the hill!

I can't tell if we had 3 or 4 coyotes at 3:00 a.m.!

First, Bambi in the meadow, now several Buck in the meadow, doing a Selfie!

Finally, I created a video of the bullfrog tadpoles in the frog pond. There are hundreds.
The frog pond has new Bullfrog tadpoles. They take 2 years to mature and will hide under the leaves for shelter, burrowing into the muck over winter. Next year they will grow appendages and lungs, and many will become prey for other critters. The cycle of life.

Great captures, Jennifer! The wildlife seem to be moving more around here lately, too. Signaling a season change, I think. Have a wonder-filled week!

Love all the video clips and you certainly have quite a number of Tadpoles in the pond but I wondered what ?bird was chirping on the video? Have a lovely weekend.
