The stick in the mud

I have been viewing the water hole for around 2 and a half years.  There used to be lots of animals visiting the 'hole', but since the dead tree branch edition to the 'hole', there seems to be far fewer visitations.  Are the animals being defensive or suspicious?  Or has the water been changed because of the dead wood in the water making it distasteful, or perhaps poisoned?  The other day there was a close-up and it looked like the wood had turned completely black with fungi, and the white stuff on the horizontal branch looks like mushrooms indicating rot.  Wouldn't it be better to mount the branch along the edge completely out of the water perhaps?  If I am all wrong about this, just ignore me.

Now see there you go,  I knew I was wrong.  I guess you could call 'me' a "stick in the mud." Wink  Thanks for the info cerinthe, all the way from Belgium no less.  I am also Dutch, French, and German plus other things, maybe that's why I can't get along with myself, LOL.

Hi Jennie, in the forum for streaming cam pics there is a sticky that explains how to capture pics and post them.

I do not know who to write to but I would like to know, how do you capture the photos of the streaming cams that I see people share?  I find the site additive at times and check back often to see what is going on in the wild.  thanks for the help in advance.

Hi and welcome prhanson, the stick is attracting many birds and we even had fish eagles using it at times. It does not scare any animals off, there are so few animals come to drink, because there has been so much rain that there are enough water in the field for them, they don't need to come to the waterhole.

The white blobs on the treestump are the nests of foam nest tree frogs.
