During the winter season we get a lot of Trumpeters wintering over. They fly down from the Yukon. They only stay in very quiet bays. The bears tag team them. When the bears go to bed,the Trumpeters arrive.
In our area Grice Bay is HQ for Trumpeters. There are around 30 to 40 staying in Grice during the winter time. Grice bay is a perfect for them! Nobody ever goes down there…….or very few! In thirty years I have yet to see another person down there when I’m there! People stay away because at low tide the bay empties exposing the mud flats.
Many birds stay down at the end but the ones I’m interested in are the Trumpeters.
So to document the Trumpeters winter stay I have placed a trail camera down there to observe.
Each time I use one of these camera traps the set up is unique. In this set up I hammered a 2X4 into the earth and attached the housing. I need the cover for the camera because of the winters rains!
I think I’ll go back in two weeks time to swap the card and batteries. I never know exactly whats going to walk past?
As per usual at this time of year we have more rain than sunshine folks! So I thought I’d post a few of my buddy Romeo eclipsing a rainbow!
True…..Into everyones life a little rain must fall but no matter what there is always something good in it!
