Thanks to a generous grant from the Norcross Wildlife Foundation, ESLT purchased a motion activated wildlife camera and other photographic equipment this last spring. The motion triggered weather proof camera captures photographs day or night without disturbing wildlife.
Throughout this past monitoring season, ESLT staff have enjoyed placing the camera on ESLT project lands with landowner permission, and downloading the photos in the office. It is a bit like opening a package on Christmas morning, we never know what we are going to get!
We hope you enjoy a few of our favorites below.

These photos are so great! Fun to see the various wild animals and birds sharing the same spaces, at different times, of course. Thanks for posting!
You’re welcome! We will continue to post as we get more.
Love the bobcat photos.
Great shots of an elusive critter.
We agree! The camera is great to see what is happening on the land when we aren’t there!
Good stuff. I think you may find that your fox is actually a juvie coyote, though. :) Thanks much for the pointer to my blog!
Thanks for that tip! Here at ESLT we were debating just that, fox or coyote? We were hoping one of our readers would chime in if we got it wrong. A coyote! Very cool.
[…] we have really been enjoying sharing wildlife sightings from various conservation projects from our wildlife camera. One species that we would be pretty lucky to catch on “film” […]
