Trail Camera Highlights


The April First 2021 Edition of Trail Cam Highlights


Wildlife video from three trail cameras.


Part II of the "bridge" location. A lot of variety. Pileated woodpecker, a muskrat, coyote, wood ducks and others. Camera angle was changed to show more of the creek.


This is the creek with the very active tree trunk "bridge". The wood ducks are back and still dispute the territory.


More of the same creek but with a second view looking upstream. The Barred Owl showed up this time but didn't make a sound. A lot of White tailed deer, raccoons and some bird call identifications.

A way to avoid the news for a little while.


Part I of March 2020, Everything that happened at the bend of the creek. The snow leaves, turkeys arrive and the deer look unkempt.


A 65 degree camera reading when the outdoor temperature was 27 F was a surprise. I had never seen this effect to such degree before. What happened is shown plus other critter activities.


The usual cast of characters show up in August plus the recently absent mink and a parade of possums. I added background music and am looking for a comments regarding whether I should keep doing it or just leave it natural.


A fox was recorded chasing deer, a fawn making odd happy sounds while it was nursing and a frantic fox chased mice around the creek.


In June we watch the "bridge" over a creek, a fawn nursing at night and a couple of unfortunate antler designs. There are a couple of great Bard owl calls at 1:55...


We stayed at the creek during May because of all the activity there this time of year.

Two questions were answered: How does a Porcupine cross water? &...  How loud IS a raccoon squabble?


The activity varies by the month. This month it was back to the creek where things were happening. Fox sightings (the crippled vixen seems to be getting around) and the usual deer and raccoons. A lot of squirrels were left on the cutting room floor. A 16 GB SD card was filled by them within a week on two occasions. (Where are the fox when you need them?) The Wood ducks were very active in the creek with a few squabbles. They are gorgeous.


February was a slow month on camera. I guess the wildlife was as reluctant to go outside as I was. Fortunately March was much better. Another first timer species on camera. You'll see it in the creek. The crippled Vixen is still getting by. She may even be picking up speed. Also some interesting sounds occasionally in the background. Some close-ups of Wood Ducks in the creek.


One new species on camera this month and some interesting animal behavior. The second half of January brought some very low temperatures. One clip that wasn’t included registered a -15F. With the wind it must have been hard on the critters.


December 2018 Trail Camera Highlights. Most activity after dark. A new species on my list with a fabulous tail and an embarrassed raccoon.

November 2018 Trail Camera Highlights. It was a busy month  in the woods! Bucks chasing doe all night.

A sad ending to this one.


It was the usual cast of characters in October. The only surprise was the creature that appeared around midnight on the last day of the month. Didn't get an ID.

September 2018 Trail Camera Highlights. Left the creek behind and went to high ground in the woods. A sleeping whitetail doe and fun with opossums.

August 2018 Trail Camera Highlights. A Michigan creek.Water attracts wildlife. A short documentary of a busy little Michigan stream showing the diversity it supports.

July 2018 Trail Camera Highlights. A Twerking Hawk & bathing birds. A busy creek for critters.

June 2018 Trail Camera Highlights. Browning Extreme & Adventuridge Trail Cameras.
