Wildlife Cameras

Cameras, which are motion triggered, might not provide the best of images (unless you spend a lot of money), but they are useful for monitoring wildlife. The images are usually good enough to identify the species.

We have a few scattered on our 52 acre property and the ones near the creeks are especially productive.

Who would have thought that the fruit-dove or the  Grey Goshawk comes regularly for a drink?

or the Rufous Owl for a drink and sometimes bath in the very early morning.

And we caught a pair of water rats in flagranti!

The Black Bittern fished this section of the creek for several weeks.

Tree-kangaroos come to the ground more often than you might think!

Sometimes an animal takes an interest in the camera 🙂
