Weekend Critters – Nighttime Creepers

I set my trailcam up on the back porch the other day. At 1 am we had a visitor.

I don’t know whether these are the same bandits or not. I think it is the reason we have had two bird feeders destroyed.

I took the camera down to Beavers Bend and set it up hoping to capture some deer but all I got was this ghostly image of a raccoon. At least I think it is a raccoon.

We have a hummingbird feeder. I have had the camera at it for multiple hours over multiple days and have captured exactly zero hummingbirds. We got a lot of critters in the background though.


Our bird feeders have lots of visitors.


I like the candid shots of them taking off or landing.


It would seem taking off or landing would be harder than flying.

I was hiking on Turkey Mountain the other day. I always keep a sharp eye out for copperheads. I didn’t see any that day but I saw this tiny critter hopping across the trail. At first I though it was a bug but I think it is the world’s smallest frog. Talk about good camo, when he quit moving, I couldn’t see him!

I’m linking with Saturday’s Critters with Eileen. Go check it out!!

    Wonderful birds and critters. I think we have the raccoons come by late at night. I like the cute bunny and the birds. The tiny frog is cute, just a baby. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy new week! PS, I appreciate the comment.

    Great to have a trail cam for your back yard. Most of the time peaceful except for the silent intruder. In my garden, I would expect to see rats or mouse.

    Raccoons cause so many problems — if only they weren’t so darn cute it would be easier to hate them. I like your incoming and outgoing bird pictures a lot.. The trail cam is fun!

    Great videos! I used to live out in the country and had owls, cows, hogs, etc. Once while my son was carrying stuff inside from the car he left the door open and a snake came in, I found it in the shower!

    I live in a town now and we have free roaming chickens and other critters.

    I think I managed to make out what it was in your 2nd video, was it a racoon? I bet they look cute but I’ve heard they are quite vicious
