This year, "Skunk" has been the word in baby critters.
Here a momma with a bunch of tag-a-longs shuffle by the camera (I count six baby tails).
Not long after, two baby skunks (Mephitis mephitis) whom are likely siblings start to get after eachother. There's nothing funnier to me than watching these little puff-balls tumble around in front of the camera.
I've posted similar incidences of sibling rivalries last year, albeit with Raccoons (Procyon lotor)....see here, here and here....
Now that I mention Raccoons.....where are the Raccoon babies this year on my sites? Last year, there was a momma with at least five offspring all over the same site where I got the skunk babies this year.
We shall see.....
I saw my first fawn of the year back on May 19th....but didn't get my first on a camera trap until recently.
Another random event.....this appears to be a Great Crested Flycatcher (Myiarchus crinitus). See the tuft of feather on the crown (top of the head), the yellow belly and the brownish tail feathers. This species is fairly common 'round here....but a first on the camera trap for me. Interesting tid-bit about this species, their nests apparently almost always contain snake skins (or strips of plastic that might resemble a snake skin).
Finally, some very nice shots of a 'Yote (Canis latrans) in summer coat. They look much different now than they look in the winter (especially considering this one is soaking wet and looks even more scraggly). But I love those ears!
