Milford Man Starts His Backyard ‘Maine Wildlife YouTube Channel’
Wow! There are lots of critters running around Scott Hayden's backyard in Penobscot County.
We all did many things during the Coivd-19 pandemic to pass the endless amount of long days and nights, wondering when this would all be over, but for most people, it involved binge-watching shows, or baking and cooking.
Scott Hayden, who resides in the Milford area, used the free time he suddenly had an abundance of, to set up a YouTube channel that captures all of the animals that roam around his multi-acre property. He would spot them regularly, and figured that he should share this with all of us, to maybe give a little bit of hope and of course, entertainment at the same time.
Maine Wildlife Trail Videos posts weekly videos of the deer, black bear, moose, owls, bobcat, coyote, turkey, raccoon, porcupine, rabbits, and other wildlife that come near his large array of trail cameras that he has set up.
Since he started the channel and posted his first video way back in May of 2020, the offerings have racked up thousands of views from people all over the world. As of today, 483,459, to be exact! Pretty impressive.
One, in particular, that was pretty damn adorable, was posted two weeks ago, it shows a very young bear attempting to climb into Scott's outdoor swing, and after giving it a go a couple of times, he finally gets up there and rocks back and forth. The bear seems to be enjoying the ride.
