Wildlife camera oh yeah

I get requests sometimes from people who want to guest-author a blog post. I reject all. But today, I have my first guest-author, my 12-yr old son Daniel. Here he is:

In mid-April my father bought a wildlife camera. I set it up and mounted it on a tripod. We picked a spot down by the river, tested the angle and left it overnight. The camera is motion activated and shoots 15 second video.The next morning I went and got the card and we got to see some of what happens in the night. The video below is a compilation of the fox playing cat and mouse with a bunny. It was a good night to be a fox but not a bunny.

 

 

Then we set it out the next night and it was a total dud. For a few nights we didn’t get anything out of the ordinary; rabbits, birds and squirrels. Then on May 5th we got some of our best stuff yet.

 

 

The camera has proven a nice way to see what happens in the yard when we’re not looking.
