Overnight Visitations

On Sunday we decided to set up the infrared game camera and see if we could catch the bear visiting. We saw him twice within two hours: once while we were grilling our pizza on the deck and again when I almost came face to face with him while going out to toss some food for the birds. Little did we know how busy our front yard would be overnight.

I love that our camera has a time/date/temperature stamp on each photo it takes. That allowed me to put together the multiple visitations of the night in the order of their visit.

First, the fox arrives at 9:14 p.m.

Then a deer shows up at 11:46 p.m.

The fox decides to come back again (see his eyes?) with the deer still there at 12:02 a.m.

Deer decides to leave and fox comes back for the second time at 12:07 a.m.

BIG raccoon! at 12:50 a.m.

Mr. Fox comes back for the third time at 2:31 a.m.

Not to be outdone by the fox, the raccoon comes back a second time at 3:43 a.m.

Likewise the deer for the second time at 4:21 a.m.

And the biggest surprise of the night was Momma bear and three cubs! Where did she come from? We didn't even know she was around. Time: 5:11 a.m.

Time to leave at 5:27 a.m.

Wow! Who knew your yard is so busy overnight.  Kind of like Grand Central Terminal. Are they looking for food you left out?  Very cool to see a whole variety of animals in the darkness.

Wow!! That’s amazing! I always wanted one of these cameras to see what’s crawling around out there at night. (Here in London it would probably just be foxes and cats, but still…) My mom’s yard in Florida would be fascinating to watch with this type of device.

Big sis, yes leftover bird food. Pretty amazing!

Steve, yes, we think so too. Up at the cabin we hope to catch some wildlife (at least we hope) with it. They are fairly inexpensive. Sorry I haven’t been around to your blog in a while! smile
