Burrow Occupancy

After one full week of having the cameras placed in the field, I went out this morning to download the photos.
 There were birds
 And more birds.
And even mice.
But the thing we found in most of the burrows.... tortoises.  
 We chose what we thought were abandoned burrows, hoping to see who else had moved in.
But instead, we found the gopher tortoises burrowing away
 In pairs.
 At night.

And especially in the bright sunny day.  333 photos had something going on.  Those are all tagged now and ready to upload.  So exciting to see so much activity in such a short period of time!
