If this wasn’t so troublesome, I’d post more of these videos. In short, something so easy like copy parts of a video recorded from my DVR takes several steps and conversions before being presentable enough to show on the web.
Let me describe what you will be seeing. On screen 1 of my DVR is a real time camera with night vision that records solely on the disappearing bird stream. At night there’s not much activity, but where there is, it’s normally exciting. Either it will be a large mammal, like a skunk or possum stopping by to drink, a frog or two hopping around eating bugs, and an occasional snake hunting for those frogs. That was until a couple of nights ago when I had a bird visitor at 11:45 pm. It was an Eastern Screech Owl. Setting the background about why it may have suddenly appeared; we had temperatures of 108 degrees that day, and it didn’t cool down much even after dark. In the first clip, that I am NOT presenting, the Owl spent at least two minutes just drinking water. In the clip I do show, he drinks and bathes, preens some feathers, and just looks around.
