This blog is predominately about camera trapping in California. We camera trap to save our souls and to teach primary school students about biology and conservation. We will also touch on other camera trapping news and musings, sets from afar, mediocre herpetology, sucky birding, and other natural history discussions.

A constant back-and-forth that at least occurs in my head, is whether to use a homebrew hacked camera, or one of the newer Bushnell Trophys.

The homebrew provides pretty decent color images 24 hours a day. The newer Bushies, while not always in color, have options for video and the added element of SOUND. These choices of course allow for a greater opportunity to capture behavior.

Here are a few images from Oakland's Knowland Park, where a choice for full color created questions, rather than providing additional information.

Would love to hear some crazy Raccoon sounds here. And who is #2 looking back at? What pace were they moving up the slope?

Yawn? Bark? Audition for Game of Thrones dragon role?

With a kiss. Party Opossum. Just because.
