|Muller Field Station, Honeoye NY - 2/13/2012|
Last week (Today was the day: camera trap deployment!), I set my 4 camera traps out, scented them, and let them go. The following are my results. Although few, I'm pleased with the variety of animals. I expected more frequency of critters. For example, I tracked a red fox right in front of all 4 of my cameras...and I didn't get it. I DID get pictures of red fox, but not the one I was expecting. We had a bit of snow over the weekend, and there were FRESH tracks Monday morning. The fox pictures I got were earlier in the week.
Anyway, here's what I got!
Camera A - Virginia opossum
Camera A - Eastern coyote
Camera A - Red fox
Camera C - Mystery animal
(Any suggestions? We're thinking MAYBE a muskrat?)
Camera D- Red fox
Camera D - Red fox
Camera D - Me!
You may have noticed there are no images from "Camera B"...didn't get any wild critters, just people walking by. Here's my set up for B...not to leave it out :)
Any thoughts on the Mystery Critter???
Finally, how lucky am I to have had 2 consecutive gorgeous days in the field?
