      Yes, such an option is being considered. Also to install two powerful lamps, whose power can be adjusted by a rheostat. They must be switched on at minimum power during the night for a longer period to allow the animals to accustom them and, in case of an action, slowly increase the power until they reach a suitable level for shooting without frightening the animals.

      Thanks, Ferdy!
      I was 2 days in the hide. There were chances for Golden eagle, White-tailed eagle, Griffon vultures, Wolves, Golden jackals. The first day on Golden jackal appeared just for a short walk around, only for a minute or two and disappeared. In the evening, just before sunset, a Golden Eagle appeared to try on the bait we had set. We had set two types of baits - for eagles and for vultures. The first day the vultures didn't come. We hoped for the next day, but at night we were awakened by growling, screaming and fighting. A pack of about 7-8 wolves pulled away and ate the entire amount of carcass destined for the vultures. We only saw some vague silhouettes. No photo opportunity!!!
      The next morning another Golden eagle visited the place. So finally only two species.

      Incredible! I am always very impressed with the ability of some species to mimic other species.

      I completely agree. Right now, in the last few weeks, browsing through the archives, I have found species that I thought I had long shot and identified, and in fact, they were new to me.
