I just tripped over a series of edited trail cam videos from Vancouver Island. This series is curated and I would say aimed at children or those with less knowledge of our wild cousins than I have, but they are calm, lovely to watch videos without the hype that  some Youtube channels seem to feel is the only way to get people to watch.

As a variation of this theme, Robert E Fuller has some awesome videos of Owls and other raptors reproducing in Britain:





And many more that I'm sure just as enjoyable.

Warning: raptors are the top of the food chain and they eat other small creatures like mice and voles. If you are sensitive about such things, these videos aren't a good match.

I found a spruce tree this winter with fur caught in its bark about 5 feet up from the ground. Today I lucked out and caught a bear using it to scratch it's back and/or leave its mark.

8 weeks ago, one of my trailcams captured a very pregnant wolf walking by. Last night, the same camera caught this:
