Down I went to the edge of the wetland. This is a spot that gets high traffic, according to the tracks in the snow. More so in summer, as the wetland water is deep here. You can see where they skirt the water in summer. The wetland is nice and flat where it is deeper water.
Jan. 25 Day 1, a red squirrel
Jan. 26 Day 2, deer (of course!) Lots of deer selfies.
I switched the direction of the camera. My experts tell me to face it north. It doesn't matter deep in the wetland, as the sun only shines when it is overhead. The trees are plentiful.
Jan. 29th Day 5 brought our fox, and then 3 deer. I love seeing the way they flip their white tails as they run!
I had someone contact me to ask advice on trailcam products. Trailcam pros and cons Of course, the purpose of the camera is important: I want to know what is in my forest. Hunters use these to determine potential hunting sites, and they don't necessarily need a good photo. They are awful for any nighttime photos, as they move quickly in the night. I want to see the smaller critters, like our snowshoe hare, and the red-tailed fox, and they are too quick! Birds are hopeless. Although, I've had a few good shots. They don't capture birds at the feeders, as they are too quick.
The Moultrie videos were better, too.
