Living on the central coast of Oregon, I encounter a variety of wildlife: deer, elk, coyotes, bobcat, racoon, plus a variety of birds. I have seen signs of bear and cougar, but until recently I have not seen any on my property. I have trail cameras set up for detecting the wildlife, and recently got a lucky day when both a cougar and a bear showed up. The cougar was photograped during the night, so the photo leaves a lot to be desired.
These next shots are of the very common deer and elk visitors which show up on our lawn almost daily. I have resorted to using a motion activated sprinkled to try to keep them from eating our flowers and shrubs. They can’t resist eating hydrangeas right down to the ground.
