    Beautiful birds.

    De bugging

    Some of our woodpeckers do the same thing.

    First attempt at YouTube

    Nice looking animal. I agree, you would be better off using Vimeo where you can upload up to 5 gb at no charge.

    Bucks out Back

    Firearms deer season begins the Monday after Thanksgiving and lasts two weeks, so there's no set date -- in 2018 it was November 26 thru December 8. Archery was September 29 thru November 12 and there are archery and flintlock seasons after Christmas into mid-January. Although deer are in season one way or another for a long time, the real pressure is during firearms season when there's a long tradition of staging deer drives with gangs of up to 25 people (although most groups are much smaller).

    Not from a homebrew, but ... Don't tell me "There ain't no deer." -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/2019/01/bucks-out-back.html

    Along the Trail

    The bobcat's probably a young-of-the-year which would account for its appearance in July, by October its winter coat was coming in so it looks more bulky (just like we do in our winter coats). A fat cat would have difficulty catching prey.

    Along the Trail

    There are ten or twelve subspecies of bobcats in North America, From the literature it appears that Missouri is on the general boundary between two subspecies which probably grade from one to the other. -- but there's some dispute about whether some of those are actually subspecies.

    She's about average for that area. The habitat in that part of the Big Woods has been severely degraded for many years. Even though there's a fair bit of hunting activity, there are probably 40 deer to the square mile, 3-4 times the population that would allow for healthy habitat. Now much of the vegetation within reach of deer consists of species they will not eat and the oak trees had a poor acorn crop this year.

    Deer eat nothing but the best, so they'd almost certainly prefer morels. Same with browse, they prefer oak to beech and wild orchids to jewelweed. They're picky critters. and their taste is similar to our preferences.

    If you run a camera trap in bear country beware -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/2018/11/bears-being-bears.html

    My New Micro W55/ssii Cam

    The Fuji J10 takes SD cards, is small and fast -- it has a fairly weak flash and the battery doesn't last long (I've run mine exclusively on externals), and won't perform well in cold weather, but the hack is on YouTube. If you don't plan on leaving the camera out long the battery should last a week or so.

    From the Hedgerow

    Other than the hack the camera is just as it came from the factory. I'm really pleased with the videos from the camera; the only thing I don't like about it is the fact that the memory's internal so you either need two cameras to exchange in the build or you need to take a laptop into the field to download the videos. My Flips store up to two hours of video other models only have memory enough for one hour's worth.Here's a link to Ralph's hack -- http://camtrapper.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=11531&sid=b09df13f982aad26374f4391b5f80ff9
