If you are curious what wildlife is roaming around your place at night, or even during the day, you might like to purchase a trail camera and fix it where you think there might be some activity. Trail cameras are not very expensive. I looked them up on Amaxon and found quite a menu of interesting possibilities, ranging from $40 to $320, and manufactured by Victure, Co\uolife, Creative XP, Campark and Meidase. These cameras are motion activated  so you should be able to get some pretty good shots. Some just take still pictures while others will record live action. When I lived in Montana, I would hear packs of coyotes roaming below my house at night. Neighbors also said there were mountain lions roaming around though I never saw even one. Wish I’d had a camera then.
