More info: The webcam is located near a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania which is close to a Wildlife Management Area and near the Allegheny River. The feeder is at a natural trail crossing and has a variety of animals coming to feed. The barrel feeder delivers corn for 30 seconds each day at 5pm local time. This is just enough feed to keep animals crossing through but not enough to disrupt their normal browsing habits or diet.
White-tailed deer are most common in this area. A bachelor group of 10 or so white-tailed deer are known to stop through every night. Other wildlife visitors include black bear, rabbit, raccoon, red fox, groundhog, birds and wild turkeys
A deer, on average, can eat anywhere from 6 to 8% of its body weight every day. That means that a 150-pound deer can eat up to 12 pounds of food per day. Although a deer’s diet will vary throughout the year, deer will primarily eat browse (woody portion of leaves and stems), forbs (broad-leaved plants), mast (acorns, apples, etc), and grass.
