Now that the ground is covered in a fresh layer of snow, it is far easier to see the tracks that animals leave behind. The wildlife activity is more obvious than ever before! I immediately saw bird tracks when I arrived at my phenology site. If I was a bird I’d fly every where but this little guy must of had other ideas.
I was also able to find tracks for deer. I find it amazing how such a large creature walked right through my phenology site, and only left a few clues for me to find.
There was also a rabbit hanging out in my site last night. I know this not just from tracks everywhere, but I also found some scat!
