BeaverCam

The BeaverCam

The BeaverCam is a video security camera that I've set up to watch various critters that live and wander around by the little beaver pond on the back of our property (in Oregon). The Cam is hooked up to a linux box (Ubuntu) with a video capture card and it takes snap shots every 20 seconds.

Also when it detects motion, it starts taking pics as fast as it can.

The software I use is a very cool motion detection package called Motion.

 

As the name suggests, I originally set it up to try to catch glimpses of the small family of beavers that maintain the pond.

The Dam is about 50-60 feet across, and they have a little den on the other side of the creek.

It's nice to sit on the little bench and watch them swimming around in the evening.

 

Here's a little clip of a beaver chewing on a log:

 

Originally, I had the beavercam set up watching the pond, and did about a year's worth of timelapse.

Here is the entire month of march (2006) .. and daily

 

 

After a while, I started concentrating on trying to catch critters on the beavercam...

 

I started baiting the beavers with curly willow trimmings, they seem to enjoy that quite a bit...

BEAVERS GALORE!
