Pam: You know, there’s a saying that “in nature nothing ever goes to waste”. We set our remote camera up at some deer remains on the ridge for 36 hours and had some good chuckles over the results. We got 523 pictures (the camera will take one picture/minute) and 500 of them were full of Magpies. Now, I love Magpies – they are gorgeous and fascinating and smart. But 500 pictures!! Anyway, the other 20 or so pictures were of a Golden Eagle, Rough Legged Hawk, and a few Ravens. We’re setting the camera up again today and I’ll post our results later in the week. It’s kind of like Christmas – you never know what you’re going to get!
