Trail Cameras Working

A bit windy this morning. I find windy days to be the least productive seeing wildlife. That being said, it was nice to see this small bear on my TC. This springs late snow and cold seemed to hold the bears in their dens later. Last year my first TC bear was March 8th this year March 28th.
Above is one of the cameras I set out this morning.  The anticipation from week to week wondering what the camera may have captured is neat !! Last years TC results were good, hoping to improve this year.
Off to a good start !!

Reservoir Was Active This Morning

While sitting just inside the wood-line on the reservoir this morning , an adult eagle landed in a white pine about seventy yards away not seeing me. It didn't provide a decent pic hidden behind branches.
I also sat at the shore of a small swamp for about fifteen minutes. Lots of activity.......
Still a little bit of ice. I did see....
immature eagle, hooded mergansers, belted kingfisher, red-wing black birds .

Also saw many tracks in the soft snow......
coyote, bobcat, turkey, raccoon, turkey, squirrel and deer

Certainly was a  nice morning to be out. With seasonable temperatures next week, activity in the woods next weekend should be good
