Oh Boy. A Smelly Visitor Appears At The Bird Stream

It appears I have another new visitor to the bird stream.  If you watch the video, you should be able to figure out what type of animal it is


Camille - LOL- That is too funny. When I clicked on the link to come watch it, the video was paused at the beginning and there was a big blurry whoosh across the screen. At first (while it was still paused) I thought that you had planted some pampas grass in front of the camera since the last video I watched. Then when I hit play and the pampas grass moved, I realized it was a big ole skunk tail- LOL. A beautiful tail at that. Did it spray the camera? As close as it was to it, it may have heard it click on when it sensed his/her movement- Heeehee.August 26, 2012 – 9:54 pm

texdr - I was kinda expecting the same thing. Thought might just be a confused raccoon since they are here nightly. Nope, big ol skunk!August 26, 2012 – 10:01 pm

Wendee Holtcamp - Oh that is too cool! I love skunks 🙂 What do you use to record stuff in your yard or take your other videos?August 26, 2012 – 10:44 pm

texdr - In this particular camera it is a Bushnell Trophy Cam. I have it positioned around a fake log just above eye level from the bird stream. It records to an SD card, which I check daily. All told I have 2 Bushnell Trophy Cams, 7 other cameras connected to the DVR, and a Wingscapes Bird Cam.August 27, 2012 – 1:31 am

Camille - That is some serious recording equipment. I would love to see what comes around our place after dark. I know something comes around at 3 AM pretty much every single morning because my outdoor watch cat climbs up on the porch bench (which is underneath my bedroom window) and does her “call to the humans inside” meow. By the time I get up and to the front door to see what is making her do this, whatever has got her in that mode is gone…August 28, 2012 – 10:47 am

texdr - Actually it’s not that expensive. It’s a Bushnell Trophy Cam. It’s about $150.00. I’m pretty impressed with the video quality in total darknessAugust 28, 2012 – 10:56 am
