Great Day Of Tracking

Lucky Dog and I had a great afternoon in the woods tracking yesterday. I shot a bunch of pictures, but only a few turned out well. We found tracks of deer, turkey (foot and wing), grey squirrel, snowshoe hare and fisher. The snow conditions were perfect for tracking; a layer of crusty snow covered with half an inch of new snow.

The coolest track we found was the turkey wing track. The turkey was walking down our road, then my guess is it got spooked, leaving it’s wing imprint on the snow as it took off.

Learning about the animals that live in the nearby woods makes it come alive for me. It was great day in the woods.

General, Nature
