Wildlife During the Snow Storm

 

The following are a few wildlife camera photos taken over the course of the last six-days since the time of the big 26-inch snow storm from last weekend.  The photos are dated from January 26 through today, January 31, 2016.  We have an automated corn feeder along one of our two streams in our low field, with two cameras facing the feeder from two different perspective angles.  During this last week we had plenty of visits from all manner of blackbirds, crows, songbirds, squirrels, raccoon, opossum, my dog Jackson and lots and lots of deer.

The following photos are primarily of our local flock of wild turkey that visit our feeder nearly daily, and have done so for months now.

. . . and now for the unusual photos.

This is a photo of a red fox taken on January 6, 2016.  Notice it’s overall small size and lanky physique.

Now check out these three photos from January 28, 2016.

I think that these photos are of a gray fox, rather than a red, and that this fox is in prime winter condition and very healthy.

I do not think that the photos in this set are of a coyote, although that occur in our stream valley.

We may need to cull one male gobbler this spring during their legal hunting season, as we have never eaten wild turkey before.  I can only assume that corn fed turkey taste even better!?
