Yet again my Trail Cam has provided me with a sighting of a new animal on our property. We have heard coyotes recently howling at night, so we knew they were in the area, but as their range can extend to 100 square kilometers and we haven’t heard them often, we thought they were not… Continue reading Top Dog
My plan to entice wildlife into view of my camera, courtesy of the dead crow, was not as successful as I had hoped. However it was interesting and I did get a number of visitors.
