Trail camera photos 10/21 – 10/28

Two weeks went by without any bobcat photos from either camera. There were skunk and raccoon photos but less other wildlife activity probably due to increased human presence (power repair, cable repair and heavy landscaping nearby). Bobcats returned! In the latest bobcat photos it’s hard to tell which are kittens and which are adults. Please…

Introducing Cave-Cam

Trail camera photos 10/1 – 10/7 Woohoo! A second trail camera was added to backyard wilderness. I’m calling it the Cave-Cam because it is pointed toward the entrance of what appears to be a small cave below the clearing where the first camera is situated. I will now call the first camera the Clearing-Cam. The…

A couple bobkitten photos

I don’t have any trail camera photos for last week due to human error: I neglected to turn the camera on! Yesterday two kittens were hanging out close to the house though, so I was able to snap some sweet photos of them with my regular camera (with a telephoto lens). Wild kittens seem to…

Trail camera photos 9/16 – 9/23

The camera captured more bobcat activity this week as well as skunk and a few bobcat-prey candidates. We see two bobkittens at times, lots of photos of a single kitten and fleeting views of an adult bobcat. I’m still very curious about whether we are seeing just one family. The lone bobkitten photographed lounging, bathing…

Trail camera photos 9/9 – 9/16

After a week of having the camera poorly oriented (oops!), for some reason we captured a much quieter span this week: lots of towhee activity, a raccoon, a skunk and a rabbit. Stay tuned though, today (9/18) I saw a bobcat down there taking a bath. That means barring camera failure, the next download should…

Trail camera photos 8/26 – 9/2

Happily, the appearance of the 3 bobkittens in this week’s trail camera photos tells us that they are still alive and well. I welcome guesses as to what kind of animal was moving out of front-center in the Monday 10:25pm shot. The adult bobcat that walks through the scene alone on Tuesday afternoon appears to…

Trail camera photos 8/19 – 8/25

Another amazing week – again 8 kinds of animals were photographed (though not the same 8 as last week). During this week, an adult bobcat shows up but with just one kitten. The week prior there were three kittens. Were two kittens off on their own adventure? Did the mama “evict” them? Or maybe they…

Trail camera photos 8/12 – 8/18

Amazing viewing! A small clearing above the currently dry seasonal creek turned out to be a hot spot for the camera. Startlingly, 8 different varieties of animals appeared through the week, and the bobkittens were so active it’s downright exhausting to watch! Here’s a selection. Enjoy the view:   Here’s a chronology of the photos…
