Fascinating Bears & Other Wildlife of South Carolina Video

Hello friends,

There have been so many bears in the woods this Spring season! During my late afternoon walk, I heard loud and heavy footsteps. I quickly turned around and saw a large bear peeking through the trees across from me. The bear was frightened and so was I.
I quickly turned and retreated into the cabin. One of the many exciting adventures of living in the woods!

A few days ago, I encountered a large black rat snake on my front porch. Luckily, our trail camera captured many of these fascinating critters.

Warm Regards,
Debra Roinestad

Turkeys & Other Wildlife on Trail Cam

The warm weather has finally arrived here in South Carolina. All the wildlife are active now. Last night, we saw a black bear on our BLINK camera looking for food.

Plus, there are many wild turkeys looking for food and simply being social. I’m very excited that our trail cameras captured this! I usually see them in my late morning walks crossing from one side of the woods to the other. I compiled 40 trail cam videos of turkeys, ravens and deer for your enjoyment.

Kind Regards,
Debra RoinestadΒ

Some fun facts about wild turkeys

Turkeys are quite active during spring in South Carolina. They are looking for acorns and seeds that dropped last fall under leaves and debris. Turkeys can run up to 25 miles per hour and fly as fast as 55 miles per hour. Also, turkeys will roost in trees overnight to protect themselves from predators. Read more here.

25 Cute Bear & Deer Trail Cam Videos

Hey Friends,

Here are 25 cute bear and deer trail cam videos! The weather has been super hot for the past few weeks in South Carolina with daytime highs in the 90s. All the critters have been very active. Early this morning, there was a cub foraging in our backyard. Looks like she found some yummy berries! All the regular bears and deer are returning with newborns. Plus, many of the cubs and fawns that we have seen in past years have become independent and are also making appearances. Luckily, our trail cam captured some of the summer excitement!

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

Lots of Love,
Debra Roinestad

Romance: Deer In Love (c) The Comfy Cabin, 2023

Hello Friends,

Ah…yes, love! It makes the world go round, your heart flutters, and you begin to feel butterflies inside your belly. Animals deeply feel love and empathy for each other.  Visit the science of love by Dr. Anna Machin click here.

Love is definitely in the air…which you will see on the trail cam videos. Raccoons and deer are hanging out harmoniously, and two deer are kissing with endearment.

β€œIt’s like at that moment the whole universe existed just to bring us together.” β€“ Serendipity

Always know that you are dearly loved and cherished. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Enjoy the trail cam videos.

Happy Valentines Day! ❀️

7 Super Cute ‘Unicorn’ DeerΒ on Trail Cam

Photo Collage by Debra Roinestad (c) The Comfy Cabin, 2023

Hi Friends,

After viewing 198 trail cam videos, I collected the best to share. As of now, there has been a deer family hanging out in the back of the woods. You will notice that there is a deer on the trail cam that has one horn. I  believe that is how the unicorn myth got started.

I have been checking the web and found out that β€˜unicorn’ deer are rare in the wild and that they are called piebald fawns, a form of a genetic mutation. Here is a news segment about these adorable deer, click here.

Also, on the trail cam video one deer has a slight eye condition. One of the eyes is smaller than the other…I believe that is also a genetic mutation.

Plus, I recently learned that deer can smell humans about 1/4 mile away! They have 297 olfactory receptors (nerve cells inside the nose) that make their sense of smell extra sensitive. 

Enjoy the trail cam videos!

Lots of Love,

Debra Roinestad

Adorable fawns have been hanging around our backyard. We are happy to have captured this footage and excited to share this with you! πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ‘ By the way, did you know that fawns are well camouflaged and have very little odor? This self-defense mechanism helps them hide from predators. Fawns instinctively lie motionless when approached by a predator. This behavioral adaptation has helped the white-tailed deer survive for ages.

For more information about fawns click here.

Enjoy the trail camera videos!

β€œWhat do you call yourself?” the Fawn said at last. Such a soft sweet voice it had!
“I wish I knew!” thought poor Alice. She answered, rather sadly, “Nothing, just now.”
“Think again,” it said: “that won’t do.”
Alice thought, but nothing came of it. “Please, would you tell me what you call yourself?” she said timidly, “I think that might help a little.”
“I’ll tell you, if you’ll come a little further on,” the Fawn said. “I can’t remember here.”
So they walked on together through the wood, Alice with her arms clasped lovingly round the soft neck of the Fawn, till they came out into another open field, and here the Fawn gave a sudden bound into the air, and shook itself free from Alice’s arms. “I’m a Fawn!” it cried out in a voice of delight. “And dear me, you’re a human child!” A sudden look of alarm came into its beautiful brown eyes, and in another moment it had darted away at full speed.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland / Through the Looking-Glass
