Adventures on My Trail Cam, Part Two

Happy Friyay! It’s been about one month since I first posted some videos of our local fauna. Well today, I bring you the best and brightest- uh, well, maybe the most curious.

These videos were captured on a pair of trail cams, set up in the back woods of our property. For those of you who’ve missed the first series, just click here, to be transported back in time: \

Here to greet us, is Miss Cervidae, 2021! She’s trying to teach her younger sister, (see uninterested sister in the background) how one goes about showing off her best features, before closing in for the “money shot”!

You might want some company for this one! The most adorable phantom you’ll ever see.

“Mmmmmm! What’s that smell? Apples? Do I smell apples? Hmmm . . . doesn’t look like one. Could be genetically modified, better give it a pass.”

My absolute fav! Do this: concentrate on the bottom left (your left) hand corner and play it on regular speed. See anything? Now, take your cursor and slow down the video, keeping your eye on the same spot. Don’t blink, or you’ll miss it!

Okay, the last video didn’t translate well to YouTube, if you couldn’t see the creature, scroll down for a snapshot.





Bugger moves lightening quick! It shows up like this on my trail cam video.

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

    1. No, it didn’t translate well from YouTube, the actual footage is much better. However, my free WordPress doesn’t seem to allow me to upload them without going through YouTube. The photo of the coyote just below it is a screenshot from that video. Amazing how quick they move.

  1. I never realized coyotes were aggressive until one attacked a two-year-old sitting at a picnic table WITH her family in Stanley Park last week- crazy!
    Great videos, Mark. You live in a beautiful place.

  2. Neat videos… I liked when the deer come close to the camera to investigate it. And I’m glad you mentioned where to look for the last video. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have noticed any animals! I watched it regular speed, then slowed the speed to 0.25 and it was easier to see 🙂

    1. Thanks, Diana. I’ve lived here since 2004 and have seen so much wildlife. I’m waiting for the wild turkeys, the fisher, and the bear to show up. I know they’re back there, too.
