I was instantly intrigued. Within a few days, I'd set up a trail camera in that area, pointed at the tree with the bear fur on it.
I discovered that a diverse array of animals use that area extensively. Most surprising was that mountain lions walk through the clearing more often than almost anyplace else.
A variety of other animals including black bears, bobcats, foxes, deer, moose, and turkeys frequent the clearing.
I made a compilation video of the best clips that the trail camera in that clearing has captured in the six months that it's been there. Almost no animals go to the area when there's deep snow on the ground so these clips are from only the limited times in the past six months when the ground was almost bare!
Enjoy the video either here or at Youtube.
this is breathtaking.... and it isn not like watching the wildlife in tv...it is like being there... although that could be a dangerous idea ;o) many thanks for sharing ;O)ReplyDelete
Great footage and editing - thanks, KB! We are on the second day of unseasonably warm weather - another predicted, then back to brrrr and wet - and I am hoping the black bears don't feel encouraged to get up and about. There is nothing for them to eat except the birdseed they shouldn't have access to. Fingers crossed.ReplyDelete
oh my gosh!!! I love it, the first bear sniffing the tree has me laughing and the deer was taking a selfie at the cam... all that gorgeous wildlife wandering past the same tree... beautifulReplyDelete
Very entertaining! The lion looks so cute looking into the cameraReplyDelete
