New cameras for Pix Controller



Pix Controller recently started streaming two new wildlife cameras. Both are streaming from remote areas in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The second wildlife camera is similar to the current wildlife camera, but this system has a high resolution camera setup close to the animals. There is a feeder that puts out a small amount of feed at day light and dusk to attract animals such as whitetail deer, wild turkey, gray squirrels, raccoons, chipmunks, birds, and much more. This is in a more remote area than the current wildlife camera and we hope to see some different types of activity. They have found out that this is close to a whitetail deer bedding area and on several occasions have had deer bed down and sleep right in front of the camera.
The next new camera is the predator camera. At this camera site they put out road killed whitetail deer, which is a common occurrence in Pennsylvania due to the high deer population. These deer carcasses are put to good use to feed and attract an array of predator wildlife such as red fox, gray fox, coyotes, hawks, owls, and raccoons. This is a great opportunity for you, the audience to see predator animals which are otherwise rarely seen.

WE hope you enjoy these two new cameras and thanks to Bill Powers and the whole Pix controller team for putting these together.
