Tulip cam’s first pictures

Setting the trail cam on the saw horse did work; several files were captured.

First, the good news.

Nothing was eating the tulips last night.

The camera did catch a few critters, though. I took some screen caps from the videos.

There was only one night time file, and it looks like the first definitive sign of raccoons. The critter passed too close to the camera to be fully captured, and it just walked by. All I can say for sure is that the tail looks too fluffy to be one of our cats. It did not go any closer to the tulips.

We did get a couple of deer passing by. They showed no interest in the tulips, and both ended up running off towards the gate by the fire pit.

The final capture was this cheeky little robin hopping around.

Whatever critter has been eating our tulips didn’t show up! I’m okay with that. Hopefully, it will stay away and the remaining tulips will have a chance to bloom, and the chewed up ones will be able to at least grow new leaves.

We shall see!

  1. I did a little research. Raccoons are one of the many critters that will eat Tulips, so your friend there MAY very well have been the culprit, or one of them.

    Believe it or not, I found a relatively simple preventive also: “Plant daffodil bulbs with your tulips…daffodils are toxic and beds where they grow are usually left alone by top-ground bulb predators. …”
