Hey guys, i am Aaron from Nebraska. I have just got into setting up camera traps to help me photograph wildlife. So far all i have is a Moultrie 880, which has just done about everything that i want it to do. In the next couple of months, i am going to have a buddy of mine who makes DSLR traps, make me a trap out of a Nikon 3100. So far right now i am trying to figure out the habit of some bald eagles around the river. I set the 880 for a time lapse and am just watching what they are doing and when they are doing it. After about two weeks, i have set up a blind so the eagles can get use to it. I am hoping that after a week the eagles are use to the blind and i can just go to town photographing them.

This is what i have so far.

I am open to any ideas from you guys if you have any.

Thanks

Welcome and once you get a DSLR trail cam going, you'll be pleased at the result…You might even be able to use a long lens and a sensor at the tree…but the focus plane is narrow with the bigger lens…good luck..nice eagle shots by the way…!

Thanks a lot guys. I am glad i found this site. Anyway, looking at putting another camera at another location for some eagles. I am stuck between another Moultrie 880 or a 6 Day plot camera.
Does anyone have any advice on this??

As far as my progress, i have scared the eagles off a little bit with my blind. I put fresh batteries and a fresh card in saturday. I am planning on going there Friday and seeing what i have. If i have something i am planning on sitting in the blind saturday morning. Fingers crossed.

These are a couple that i got last winter/spring. Eagles are very goofy here in Nebraska. 1/4 mile away and they are flying away from you. I have some of the best photo equipment that money can buy, but it takes a very patient person to get the photos of wildlife around here. I spend a lot of time in a blind.
These pictures are a little soft because my 500mm lens decided it was to cold to focus, so i had to switch to manual focus. It was around -12 that day and i couldn't keep from shaken.
