This is our patio, for those who don’t know. We keep the feeder stocked and lots of birds come in. Ground feeders visit, too, packrats, mice and bunnies gleaning the spilled seed.
David has a night-vision camera with a motion detector. He hangs it on the near portal post.
This is what the area under the feeder looks like at night.
And here’s a bunny coming to visit.
In the classic cycle of nature, where there’s prey, predators follow. (Note coyote tail disappearing into the brush.)
After a suitable amount of time, the bunny returns.
What? You didn’t believe me before about the coyote? Couldn’t see him?
Here he is!
Wondering what that clicking sound is.
He hunts through the night. Leaving with dawn and the stirring of our household.
These two are from another night, but I like the sequence.
Last clear shot at 4 am.
And our dog, Zip, investigating the invisible evidence.
