Trail Camera Wildlife Video

This video shows a variety of wildlife species using a trail

The trail camera was set up perpendicular to a trail along an old dirt road. Humans rarely visit this location. The only sign I found on the trail was a couple old black bear scats, a lot of deer tracks, a fox scat and a coyote scat. Watch this video to find out who else uses this trail. A lot of wildlife pass by this point!

A note about trail cameras: Many of the animals appear on the screen once that are halfway through the frame. This is a function of the camera's trigger speed. The camera takes photos when it senses motion. The trigger is set to start filming one second after it detects movement. The designers of these cameras do this so that the animal is in the middle of the frame when a photo is taken. There are cameras with super-fast trigger speeds. The model I used here uses a one-second trigger speed. That is the lowest setting possible on this model. There are cameras available with a zero-second trigger speed! That means, it starts filming right away if it detects movement.

Hope you enjoy the video and the views of my backyard wildlife! Cougars, deer, and coyotes, oh my!

The cougar is also called mountain lion, puma, panther, catamount, or panther. It is all the same species! It is known as Puma concolor to scientists.
