The Brush Pile II

Last May I set a camera trap at a brush pile above the house and posted a selection of photographs from the first month here.
Now, more than six months later and before we have much snow on the ground, it’s time to post more of the photos from the brush pile –

Brown Thrasher

Dark-eyed Junco

Meadow Vole

House Wren

Eastern Chipmunk

Carolina Wren

Deer Mouse
White-footed Mouse
Several of the pictures were a bit humorous as squirrels and white-footed mice went through gyrations on the brush pile.

The camera trap has five more months to watch the brush pile; through the depths of winter and the greening of spring. More to come:


  1. Quite a variety of things captured there! I'm surprised by all the birds the camera caught. When we lived in the country outside Guelph, i built some brushpiles on the property so the rabbits would have a fair chance to get away from our dog (after she caught several).

  2. Wow, you do see a neat variety of animals with your cam. I love all the birds, bunny and the cute mice. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  3. Love, love, love this post! What fun! Great photos!
