Although we see our local pair on gray fox make the rounds and check out the bird feeders every evening – I have been generally surprised at the lack of other wildlife at night. I hoped, and suspected this had to do in large part with my game camera that now actually has javelina teeth holes in one of the sensors.
So last night I put out two brand new game cameras. Wow, there is a lot that goes on out here at night! The camera at the water hole captured the gray fox pair at 4 different times during the night. Plus, this bobcat who made himself at home. A great-horned owl stopped in for a bath. Plus, skunks, javelina even a small mouse.
I pointed the second camera at some hummingbird feeders and it showed a steady stream of bats coming in for a quick drink!
I will soon begin setting up remote triggers and flashes to capture more professional images of this activity – excited about all the possibilities!
