The results were nothing unusual. Many of the same characters as we saw the month before. No skinny mountain kitty though, and the bear and coyotes didn't come by nearly as often - perhaps because the manzanita berries along the trail are mostly finished.
I do like the camera angle and level - it's low to the ground and pointing downhill, which gives it an eye-level point of view for medium-sized animals coming uphill towards it.
Pointing a camera downhill also helps keep the harsh sun off the front, and can reduce false triggers (pointing uphill can open the face of the camera to the sky and sun).
Morning jack showing off his incredible ears
Mule deer traffic jam. Those are some seriously long spikes!
Ole black bear stops to smell the coyote scat I left out (for just that purpose)
Turkeys ignore the scat - like us, they can't smell much
This dashing western scrub jay posed so nicely that I had to include it
Turkeys look cool in black & white too
A foggy night and a pair of bobcats! Maybe we'll get bobkittens next year
Coyote delivering a retort to the calling card, or freshening it up (if it was his to start)
Gonna have to try a homebrew there next year.
