🐾Saturday's Critters🐕

I've moved the front yard trailcam, here are the last of those videos in that location. It was facing the front yard bird feeder.

I like watching Butch raccoon, I haven't seen many as the cold must make them a bit sleepy. It stood up and did 'bear' – sitting on its haunches, and looking for trouble.


Today is our December bird count. I've had 13 mourning doves at one point.


I've been watching the cottontail coming to the feeder. Attaching the time to the image, it is interesting figuring out when they have visited.


I found that I have 2 cottontails! Not only that, but the one bunny sits up, doing 'bear' and I figured out it was looking at Oregano, our feral visitor.


Having moved the camera to the deck, I managed a wonderful set of 20 videos on Thursday, Dec. 16th. I chose just one to give you an idea of what happened.

This is where it sat. You'll note the ribbon...

It was another gusty, windy night. Cinnamon wanted to hunker down in the Muskoka Room. I finally had to bring him in when I was ready to turn the light out at 9 p.m. He was happy watching the wind.

Down in the forest, real action!

5 coyotes at the same time...

Hello Jenn,

You do have lots of critters in your yard. I love the bunnies, I have not seen them in my yard lately. The 5 coyotes is a neat capture, I hope they move on.

One of the guys here had an infrared camera and there were surprising images from that.

My trail cam has been sitting on my desk without a card for months. Sigh!

I didn't know rabbits could become bears. Was it going to attack the cat? Linda in Kansas

5 coyotes at the same time? Amazing.
I have actually seen a coyote upclose. It was in Yellowstone. It just headed where it was going and did not let any humans bother it. A nice memory.
