MORE DECK CAM PHOTOS

I still haven't gotten over the novelty of having a deck cam, so I hope you won't get bored with another set here.  I will give them a break after this. The photos with the information on the bottom are straight from the camera, the ones without info I have cropped to get a closer view of what critter set off the sensor.  Here we go...

I had a night visitor!  





A little too close buddy!








The Blue Jays are other frequent visitors.



If you look closely in the photo below, you can see someone coming into frame in the lower right hand corner.
And there he is....
and there he goes.
And he's back...
for a little while at least...
but then it is the male Cardinal's turn....
and the Black-capped Chickadee.

And the saga continues, who will get the most sunflower seeds on this deck rail.
I think it's a toss up between the squirrel and the racoon.  What say you?  They also want to know where the peanuts are.

  1. This is just so awesome! If I had one, I would never tire of watching it. It's like watching one of those animal spy cameras on T.V. My bet is on the squirrel.

  10. This is really great, Denise! The raccoon unfortunately can do some damage. We had one on our roof a few years ago that startled me during the night. I couldn't sleep and was laying back in my recliner. I looked up and I saw two glowing eyes looking at me through the sky light! After doing research we learned they can get into your attic and make quite a mess, so we had the limb (highway) removed to keep them off the roof! I love seeing wildlife and your camera looks like fun! ♥

    1. Hi Martha Ellen, that would have been scary. To tell you the truth I don’t usually feed the birds in the summertime, as I know they have enough food in nature. I do put dishes of water out though. The only reason I have the feeder full is to test the camera. Usually when I put feeders out in the summer they attract the raccoons and other larger critters. They go into hibernation in the winter months and as food gets scarce that is when I start feeding the birds again.
