Anyone at home?

August 14, 2012

This nest-box is proving a popular spot for nocturnal mammals.  We set up a remote camera because a recent inspection had revealed an apparently active Brush-tailed Phascogale nest inside the box. However, instead of the phascogale, we recorded a Sugar Glider and a Common Ringtail Possum conducting their own inspections.  The box was actually designed for phascogales, with a small entrance hole at the back close to the tree-trunk. The hole would be too small for the ringtail possum, who eventually exits stage front, right over the camera !

The video may take a while to load.
