Fisher Den Video

During the denning season the Fisher Team will climb fisher den trees for the purpose of enumerating kits and estimating fecundity within the overall study population. A specialized camera with an infrared illuminator is lowered into den cavities to “look around” and try to visualize kits for counting. On May 26, 2011 we used this camera to investigate a den tree being used by female fisher F07. This video footage was the result; we now know that F07 produced two live kits during the spring 2011 denning season.
