Another what is it photo?
Backyard trailcam, sorry for color, it's cold and batteries low... Look lower left section... Still scratching my head what it is...
Looks like a raccoon rump to me.
Ya know molsonarcher, I didn't want to say cause it was around 20 degrees and snow, buy yeah, looks like a ground hog to be too...
Notice the tail and nose in blowup...
Don't think its a raccoon because when they come around I leave dog food in a bin for them, and they haven't been around in days...
Who'd have thunk a groundhog would be out in this kind of weather...
Oops forgot the blow up...
goose with left wing tucked under
I saw several out the last few days. They must be getting cabin fever. Or maybe practicing for Groundhog Day? It’s not unusual to see a few stirring around in January.
No Gh's out around here, to cold, to much snow with more coming with single didgit temps to follow ... 'chucks wont be out for a long while
Bou'bound - I can see how you are coming up with a goose, the tail being the neck and head, but to small to be a goose...
I'm still thinking groundhog, but be the first time I've ever seen one mid winter... Seen a lethargic sick one once missing big patches of hair the first week of December, remember because it was gun season here, and have seen them out in snow during late February, usually males traveling between burrows to breed females... If it is groundhog, likely something wrong with it...
Was hoping this was going to be a Bigfoot thread.
Looks like a starter cairn. Any trailcam hippie pics on the same camera?!
Maybe it is an honest politician. I haven't seen one up close and personal.
From the first pic I was going to say its a basketball. With the zoomed in shot, I agree with goose. Can see the white face patch, beak, and black neck.
Think a guy over on the LeatherWall solved it, I now think its a Cottontail rabbit... Makes more sense than a groundhog and is the right size... Now why didn't I think of that...8^)
They are kinda uncommon around my house, too many predators (especially hawks, one sets back there all the time), but occasionally do see one in the neighborhood, just not very often.... Nice to know one is still alive...8^)
Clearly a Cowboy's fan curled back into the fetal position and sobbing gently.
Looks like the cover on my septic tank pump out pipe.
Holy cow, I think Norseman got it- a wold! Haha, I haven't seen a wold reference in a while!
Okay, now you guys got me wondering what a "wold" is?
A northern species of typo. Still on the endangered species list I believe.
Thwacker...you stole my thunder. Any outdoorsman worth a salt know that Ohio is polluted with armadillos:^)
