Camera traps in the Lehigh Forest, Fall 2015

General ecology students installed two camera traps in the Lehigh University Experimental Forest.  The image tally after recording for about six weeks: one fox, one raccoon, one chipmunk, 2 domestic cats, 18 squirrels, and 38 deer.  Some highlights…

“Fox went out on a chilly night…”

Yes, you can see a black cat at night.

Must be some native vegetation back here somewhere.

A deer can’t live on Japanese Barberry alone.

Wow.

P00[C000-I080-E067@003]R256-G256-B256-(I:42-G078h-L0372)-c81-L512-P(09-0360-1080-0359-1079)LB00-RTC0-A0

There has not been any tree recruitment here for decades.

Out for a noon-time stroll.  Looking for lunch.

Another picture of the same male.

An ecosystem modeller with the EES-80 class!

Still hungry.

P00[C000-I080-E067@003]R256-G256-B256-(I:42-G078h-L0372)-c81-L512-P(09-0360-1080-0359-1079)LB00-RTC0-A0

Nope, no native birds here.

P00[C000-I105-E069@002]R256-G256-B256-(I:27-G0fdh-L0558)-c81-L025-P(09-0360-1080-0405-1290)LB00-RTC0-A0

Not a very large forest fragment.

Time for a selfie.
