Didn’t catch much with the Wildview camera this month, other than myself going to check the camera from time to time. Had been hoping for a fox I’d seen go this way. But just the one squirrel, barely visible, on the small tree at lower right. That’s Sandy’s barred owl nesting box at upper left, still owl-less after all these years.

Our Wildview camera’s video of a bluebird at the bluebird box 21 May 2011, 4:23pm. Only a week ago we though this box was occupied by chickadee chicks. After Youtube starts, you can activate the full-screen option by clicking an icon in lower right which looks like one of these:
March 27 through April 2, 2011 — 54 pictures in 54 seconds, with the Wildview camera pointed at the bluebird box. Although I saw a chickadee exit the box last weekend, I definitely saw a bluebird peering into the box yesterday, with a partner on a twig nearby. So why didn’t the camera see them?
