Spring Wildlife on Trail Cam

Photo by Pete Nuij

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. 

Read more about the black bears here

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!

Warm Wishes,

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.

Always know that you are dearly loved and cherished. 

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

5 Super Cool Raccoon Trail Cam Videos

A family of raccoons live in the back of the woods behind the cabin. Raccoons are extremely intelligent and resilient in the wild. The raccoons have been active since the black bears began their hibernation phase for the winter. Raccoons need to stay safe from bears because they eat raccoons. To read more click here.

Here are a variety of trail cams of the raccoons. Enjoy the trail cam videos!

Warm Wishes,

Raccoon Stealing Chips on My Front Porch

In the afternoon, I heard a loud clunk in the log cabin. I went downstairs to investigate and caught this little one stealing a bag of potato chips. Usually, I leave snacks out for the mailman and delivery folks. During the heist, I saw the raccoon with a bag of chips in her mouth. Also, she had ripped open a bag of Fritos. So, now I learned that Lays, Fritos, and Cheetos are the raccoons’ favorite snacks. Duly noted. πŸ₯° πŸ‘

Trail Camera Raccoons

Hey Friends,

The raccoons are back in town. Kurt and I set the trail cameras further in the back of our cabin. See the previous post. The trail for the raccoons is very narrow and we had to crawl under a large fallen tree. Glad we did that! The raccoons here are very shy and difficult to capture on video. Also, see the previous post from February of raccoon on the trail camera here. Enjoy!

Much Love,
Debra Roinestad 🌿
