Well the critter-cams at The Holler have been busy clicking away. We set our camera to take seven shots with each motion detected, typically the seven shots yield one photo, so this is not a necessary feature. My son also set up two of his critter cams. His camera takes one shot per motion detected. So we have had three cameras busily clicking away. We have about 100 catches so far. Take a gander at the denizens of the day and night!
Remember though, these are stationary, 24 hour critter cams. Not art cameras. We are using them to try and document the incredible amount of predatory activity at The Holler, especially at night. It often sounds like Jurassic Park out here at night and these photos show why!
This coyote is on our property quite close to the house. There are two daytime shots of this one, taken today. Click to enlarge.
Beautiful animals aren’t they? And now for the eerie denizens of the night, which is when the coyotes rule over all!
This coyote is investigating the camera.
These are with Matt’s camera that was up for 2 nights. His camera cost $50 and ours around $100. This is a large male in the distance.
Can you see this one in the distance? You can also see a second camera attached to the rattlesnake fence on the left.
And what are all these Wiley E. Coyotes looking for?
BTB, the roadrunners are quite quirky. They people watch, like people bird watch. They stand on one of our outdoor tables to watch my husband eat breakfast. Fascinating for them. I often wake in the morning to find one peering at me through the French doors. They are always snooping around. Whenever we put anything new outside, they investigate it once the coast is clear, as you can see this one do with Matt’s critter cam which he attached to a rock on the ground.
