This is a test post. A newborn Elk calf was seen on Camera #10. This is a first for the website as Elk are extremely particular in where they calve. New bird nest cameras are being added every week so be sure to keep checking out the live feeds page to birds laying their eggs. A new HD video camera has been installed on a Red-naped Sapsucker nest cavity. Click here to view the live HD feed.

The migratory birds have returned for the breeding season and new species are popping up every day. We have begun installing new birdbox cameras in some of the nestboxes so be sure to check out that page and see who is building! Our first Grizzly Bears of the season were spotted by Cameras #5 and #8. Take a look at Camera # 8 and see who was following them!

Spring is slowly arriving in Condon and we have been capturing some new species on the cameras. Within the last month, we have gotten pictures of an American Mink, a Fisher and a Sandhill Crane. The nestbox cameras will be up and running soon and we plan on moving a few of the trail cameras to even better locations for the summer. Be sure to check out all the new photos as they arrive!

The wildlife appears to be a little slower in the winter and not as many new photos come in every day. That doesn't mean that they aren't out there! Elk have migrated into the area for the winter and there are still plenty of deer. Mountain Lions and Coyotes have been seen on the cameras lately and Grey Wolf tracks were seen just yesterday while working on the property...so keep your eyes open!

It is hard to think of snow with all the nice weather we have been having, but we have been preparing for winter the last few weeks. All of the nestboxes were cleaned and prepped for spring, the underwater cameras were secured for ice and snow and all the cameras were checked for the imminent winter weather. Our Black Bear cub from this past winter returned for a visit as well. Be sure to check out the den photos here.

We have installed more cameras in the nest boxes as well as on nests on the ground and in a tree. A few of the eggs have even started to hatch! Watch Bird Cameras 9 (Mountain Bluebird) and 11 (Dark-eyed Junco) to see the nestlings begin to grow! You can even see the parents feeding and caring for their young.

Spring is in full swing and we have been busy watching the many birds on the property. This past week we moved Buckeye Camera 2 and installed 4 new nestbox cameras. We plan to install even more over the next week so check back soon. We are currently monitoring a Mountain Bluebird, two Mountain Chickadees and a Kestrel box that always attracts an interesting assortment of visitors.

We were out on the site yesterday and decided to move two cameras to new locations. Camera 18 was moved from the small animal den to a new road location near our weather monitoring device. We have never had a camera out there so it should be interesting to see what new wildlife we find. Camera 6 was moved from facing the pond to one of our bear rub posts. Hopefully we will catch some bear action soon!.

In 2009 we were able to assist in the relocation of a black bear cub. Throughout the winter we have been monitoring his behavior and patterns. We now have video clips available for on-line viewing. From a casual yawn to a visit from a neighborly skunk, these clips are interesting and educational. These videos can be viewed in the Bear Den Archive.
