(everybody sing) Good Ole' Stumpy-Top. Stumpy-Top Tennessee!

Because there are so many pictures in this series, I'm posting them smaller than I usually do - but they're definitely worth clicking-on-a-pic to enlarge. To attract wildlife, I put one handful of a shelled corn/birdseed mix on top of the stump, and the first visitor was a woodpecker.

This picture gives you some perspective as to the stump's height.

Next, an optical there's actually a rotted out gap in the side of the stump.

You gotta love the sensitivity of the Moultrie cams. I must have had 40 pictures of this mouse.

A curious raccoon decides to find out what all the fuss is about on top...

...and for a while, claims the spot as king of the hill.

By the time this squirrel arrived the next morning, I doubt there was much left to eat.

Coming up next week, an update from the suet spot and we play 'Find the Chipmunk'.

  1. WOW, that stump is a favorite hangout for all the animals! It's hard to believe that little mouse set off the camera, especailly at that distance. Thanks for the great pics Steve!
