Nocturnal activity continues in the High Point Preserve which is under the stewardship of the Edward L Rose Conservancy. Porcupine, fishers, and a fox return to this trail location. A fox approaches the field of view of the motion activated camera and the fox balks and runs. Curious from the behavior whether the fox is able to detect either a high frequency sound or the infra-red illumination source from the camera.
In this video we can obserrve some behavior from at least three individual fishers including a pair. Fishers are good tree climbers, with retractable claws and the ability to rotate their rear paws to enable tham to climb head first down a tree.
These videos were filmed at nght using an infra-red light source. Two porcupines meet and the surprise encounter raises the quills on one of them.
