Now that summer has drawn to a close, it’s time to look back at some of the videos that the camera trap in the hollow collected during the warmest weather of the year. With the exception of insects, for most species of wildlife – and me – hot weather is unpleasant. Combined with an abundance of food, heat reduces wildlife activity.
So the camera trap only had a few videos in July, but they’re worth a look: Twin white-tail fawns checking new scents – including the camera. A young buck. A black bear with tags in its ears. An eastern coyote with a limp. Wild turkeys. Another eastern coyote – this one out and about in daylight. And the fawn again.
July in the hollow is quite different from winter in the hollow as seen here.
