Results from the new trail camera…

…have been really sparse so far.


Can’t complain about the size or resolution of the pictures it takes, but the sensitivity leaves quite a lot to be desired. It seldom notices a Jeep going by and only sporadically an old man with a dog. It ignores birds entirely even though they flock to the spring. So I don’t take the fact that it hasn’t taken a single wildlife pic as evidence of a lack of wildlife.

I’ve gone through the settings repeatedly and unless I’m doing something really stupid wrong (never out of the question, as regular readers know) it’s set as sensitive as it can be.

    Joel, post the make and model of the trail cam. I’m sure that one of the readers will have the answer.

    Tobie looks a lot bigger than I visualized him.

    I don’t know the current tech state of wildlife cams, but is it possible it is smart enough to only take pics of actual wildlife? These days it’s easy to recognize and ignore vehicles, people, tree motion, and birds (birds are constant and everywhere so I can understand not triggering on them).

    You are presuming this is a motion detector, when in fact it may be a true wildlife detector. It’s just a difference in software.

    I’ve never heard of anything like that.

    Our “smart” video doorbell announces “There’s a person at the door!” when the friggin’ garbage truck passes by 200 feet away. AI, feh.

To the stake with the heretic!
