Reading Room: Photographs: Drakes Estero Wildlife Monitoring Camera - May 2007

Below are descriptions of directories containing the Wildlife Monitoring Camera photographs taken of the Oyster Bar (OB) harbor seal haul-out site within Drakes Estero during May 2007. The camera was programmed to capture images every minute from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. from May 5 to May 8, from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. from May 9 to May 18, and from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. from May 21 to May 31. There may be gaps in the sequence of images when regular camera maintenance occurred and when there were camera malfunctions, dead batteries, full memory cards, etc.

Please note that the 12:00 p.m. to 12:59 p.m. images are included in the AM directories. If these were included in the PM directories, they would be listed last, instead of before the 1:00 p.m. image.

Click on a hyperlinked date below to open up the desired directory. Images are each ~300 KB in size.
