This motion-detect trail camera was set by volunteer Sarah McQuade with the help of Research Director James Fischer. The center of these photographs is a coyote that was struck and killed by traffic on route 202 in Litchfield in late-December. Its carcass was transported by Mr. Fischer to this site off North Shore Road in the Bantam River Field. The photgraphs taken by the camera give some insight into the life history and behaviours of certain species. Please enjoy some of these interesting photographs and make some inferences about the ecological relationships at play here.
