Happy Woodchuck Day!


In honor of Groundhog Day, here's a video we did in June 2008, before the blog was up and running.

We will check on Lyndhurst Larry today and report any activity.

The one-minute video features a woodchuck looking out of its den on a path in DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst, when Junior butts in. (Best played with audio on.)

Note: We realize that it is a bad idea to take hang out in front of birds' nests or mammals' dens in an effort to get a family portrait. The animals feel threatened and cannot escape.

For this video, we used a trick we learned minutes earlier from a professional video cameraman: You put the video-cam on a tripod not too far from entrance, hit "record," and walk away.

Later on, you come back, retrieve the camera and see what you caught on video. 🙂
