Candid Camera

We are having a very successful camera trapping season this year in the Albany Pine Bush! With the help of science volunteers, we have been moving four wildlife cameras around the preserve every two weeks. These cameras are motion sensitive, much like the “Free Cookies!” exhibit in the Discovery Center and take photos of animals as they pass by. The cameras help us to observe and study animals that are difficult to find such as fishers, foxes and coyotes. Not only are we able to determine what mammals live where but we¬†will also able to determine how many there are by identifying and counting individuals. One day we got lucky when our camera captured a young gray fox family. The camera took numerous pictures of mama fox stalking around at night but during the day, her kits came out to play!
