What direction are you facing your cam(s)?  Also look very, very close......often I've looked back through some of my pics for the millionth time only to notice a tail, bird, squirrel, etc. that set it off.

The sun shining directly into the RS PIR will trip the PIR.  The first time I set out my cam I set it facing east and 15 picts of beutiful sunrises.  I now always try and face the cam either north or south as much as possible.

in the winter  SOUTH is not a good place to point it either,  the sun swings way south this time of year (take a look about Noon and see)

to be safe,  point it due north if at all possible,  the morning sun don't hurt it as bad as setting sun so a little N/E isn't too bad (at least for me)

I try to remember to take a compass with me to set it up if I'm not too sure about the area

Bohunter,  I had a problem on one particular food plot with false pics.  And what I found was Robins and Black birds seem to migrate thru that area.  The birds were tripping the pir but by the time the cam went off the bird was out of the pic.  I moved the cam to several other locations and never had a problem with false pics again.
