A few weeks ago my sister-in-law saw that a rotten log out back of their house had been torn into; like huge chunks ripped out of it. She was kind of nervous about it; even though we told her it was probably a woodpecker.
So Gary, with his own curiosity in mind also, went off and bought a trail camera or game camera or wildlife camera or whatever you call it. Here is what he caught ripping into the log:
He set the camera in the creek bottom, somewhere along the actual creek bed, I believe. He caught this:
Then I took the camera down near the river and got a whole lot of nothing.
I took it back down to the river and put in a different place. Here are a few of the pics I got.
The day the deer came the camera actually caught more than 20 pics of them. It got quite a few more of the turkeys as well. What you can't see in the pics is that there is a small spring trickling down there along where the turkeys are lined up in the last pic. I think that attracted them.
We had to recharge the batteries for the camera. Gary wants me to put it out again, but I dunno where. We want to figure out how to get it to take pics at night, or videos. I just haven't had time to truck it down there again. Plus it's probably grown up quite a bit now, not to mention the ticks are out.
Well, when I get a chance I will take it down there again.
