Feeders are up (suet, peanuts, black oil sunflower seeds, safflower, Finch feed, a few bird houses (intend on adding many more) bird baths (one heated for winter), one bat box, salt licks, deer apples, barley & molasses with corn mixed in for the deer and a few freeloaders (raccoon and rabbit).
We also have white-tailed deer and coyote and a wolf/coyote hybrid.
We currently have one trail cam, but we hope to add one or two more units. We also would like to construct an elevated observation platform this autumn or sometime next spring. This will provide unobstructed views of the marsh on our property.
Here are some images taken with our trail cam. Note the date and time stamp, plus the temperature when the photo was taken.

Our trail camera is a Bushnell Trophy 8 megapixel Trail Cam. The triggering mechanism is set-off by motion.
