The frantic energy of squirrels in the fall
Raccoons investigating our game cam!
Not surprisingly, during the day most of our videos were of squirrels. One of the coolest parts of the squirrel videos was watching them bury red oak acorns and bitternut hickory seeds. They then pad up the ground to hide their tracks. During the night we got lots of videos of raccoons (above) and a bunch of skunks. The squirrels seemed to avoid the trail, while the skunk and raccoons (there are at least 2 raccoons) stayed along the trail pretty faithfully. We'll be setting the game cam again this week and this time baiting it to see what changes we can observe.
