Trail cam tails...

Butch raccoon kept knocking the videocamera off of the pile of logs. Dweeb!
It resulted in a fun video of a pregnant deer's belly. Can't wait to see the fawn! You can see the hoof sticking out of the side of her belly!

Somebody (Butch Raccoon?) knocked the videocam off of the top of the log. The camera was sitting sideways, which provided an interesting video of my pregnant deer!

Fawns from a previous year.

These fawns were rescued by Aspen Valley.
I send them money to support their wildlife shelter.
I managed to find my post and stick, which was holding my still photo camera. I've only had deer visit the past couple of weeks, after a bear and porcupine on the trailcam movie. Good to know the bear isn't going through every day.

It occurred to me that this would be a good place to put a lone bee shelter!
This is interesting. 

How to make a 'bee hotel' to house solitary bees, Mason Bees, Leafcutter Bees.

Very cute!

Darn raccoons, I'm mad at them. They raided my racoon-proof* suet feeder two times this week!

* location, the feeder is cheap and easily put back together even after they bust it open.

The Medicine River wildlife Center has found that fostering fawns works like magic. If you know where there's a doe just drop the little guys off. Hang around for a few minutes and the doe comes running to pick up the new little guys.
