Magical Coyotes & Other Wildlife Captured on Trail Cam

Within the woods is where the magic happens! That’s especially true when you capture a coyote on the trail camera. I compiled some recent trail cam videos of coyotes along with bears, ravens and deer. I hope you enjoy.

“Coyotes have the gift of seldom being seen; they keep to the edge of vision and beyond, loping in and out of cover on the plains and in highlands. —N. Scott Momday

So, what’s so special about the coyote? What makes them so magical?

 Here are three great reasons that make a coyote special.

First, coyotes are efficient hunters because of their sharp senses. They use mostly their sense of hearing and sense of smell to capture their prey. Whenever prey is not available, they will eat large quantities of berries and fruits.

Second, coyotes are extremely fast and can run as fast as 64 km (40 miles) per hour.

Third, coyotes are nocturnal and have nightly serenades of yaps and howls. Plus, their howls are a code for other coyotes. Coyotes have a pecking order (Alpha, beta, etc). Their howls let each coyote know who is in charge! You can read more on Decoding Coyotes Yips, Barks, and Howls.

Wishing you a magical day!  Enjoy the trail cam video.

Adorable Black Bears Searching For Grubs and Grazing (Videos)

When you think of black bears, you may not consider that part of their daily routine is grazing! But, according to the National Park Service, black bears graze on a variety of grasses. Black bears also search for grubs and will use their claws to dig in the ground for these tasty treats. They also climb trees in their search for food. Read more here. They are excellent at identifying edible yummies and can smell food up to 20 miles away!

As summer winds down, black bears will soon go into hyperphagia mode. Hyperphagia is a period when black bears have an intense and persistent sensation of hunger. They gain enormous amounts of fat to help them get through the winter.
See my previous post on the bears entering hyperphagia phase, ‘Black Bear Steals Bucket From My Front Porch’. Click here.

Enjoy the trail cam videos!

Lots of Love,

Elderly Bears in the Woods of South Carolina 

Trail Cam Video

Photo by Bill Pennell

There aren’t many articles written about elderly bears or ‘elderly’ wildlife in general. That’s why I am giving homage to these adorable critters. After viewing so many trail cam videos…I feel a close connection to these older forest dwellers.  

The oldest known living bear was a polar bear that lived for 42 years! Black bears (the species that lives here in South Carolina) have reportedly lived as long as 30 years or more. Read more on the ‘9 Oldest Bears of All Time‘. Click here.

I really admire the gentleness and wise expression of this bear on our trail cam. I feel as if  I found a wise teacher that has taught me to slow down and enjoy life.

Warm Wishes,
Debra Roinestad

Spring Wildlife on Trail Cam

Hey Everyone! 

April is an exciting time to see wildlife in the woods. All the animals are active this month. Black bears are emerging from their dens and showing up around the neighborhood. I spotted a black bear and her cubs a few miles from my home and captured a short video.

Plus, the coyotes are roaming around at night, and the raccoons are busy socailizing and searching for food.

As always, enjoy the trail cam videos!

Seven Coolest Bear Trail Cam Videos

Black Bear: Trail Cam (c) The Comfy Cabin, 2022

Hey Everyone!

The bears here are ‘hangry’ during their hyperphagia state. Read more here.  And oh boy, did they enter that stage of angry-hunger! They have been wandering around the neighborhood eating my neighbors’ grapes off the vine and smelling the delicious food from the camper’s trailers that are about 1 mile away. 

During hyperphagia, bears need to eat ten times the calories they would normally consume which is about 20,000 calories a day.

Bears can smell over 20 miles away for any delicious food or carcass on the side of the road. Our trail cams captured the black bears sniffing behind our home in the woods for anything yummy to eat.

Read more about the bear’s sense of smell from the Section Hiker here.

Enjoy the trail cam videos! 🙂

The bears are very active this summer. The videos below show them enjoying themselves around 10 pm, playing in the rain, and searching for food. The mother bear is training her cubs to be independent. The cubs are exploring by themselves and are on a quest for some adventure! They will begin hibernating in late fall and will remain in their dens until Spring. So, it’s time to party-hardy before the summer is over! 

Warm Wishes,

Kurt & Debra

“Grizzly bears and black bears generally do not eat, drink, defecate, or urinate during hibernation. Bears live off of a layer of fat built up during the summer and fall months before hibernation.” —Yellowstone, NPS
