With plenty of snow around us and more coming, one thing the snow is good for is finding out what else lives in our world.
When animals or birds move in the snow they leave tracks. Their tracks are generally not as deep as ours. They are lighter, smaller footprint, claw print, whatever.
The snow makes it easy to see something has moved by. Something has been here.
Now, have they come out just because there is snow? I don't think so. Most of these tracks are likely also made in warmer weather. The tracks are not as visible to the eye as in the snow.
Beware then, every step you make, you leave your mark!
Some are more visible than others.
What kind of mark do you leave?
