I looked out the window to see how much, if any, suet remained in the feeder that neighbors, Curt and Meghan gave us at Christmas time. It is nearly gone.
Then I looked at the tracks on the ground. Whoa! I did a double take. Is that a deer track? From my vantage point it looked like it could be. I retrieved the camera from the office, donned coat, hat, gloves and headed out the door.
I scanned the ground for more evidence as I approached the print in question. It is large. I laid my glove beside it and got this pic.
It was not made by a white tail. A cotton tail is responsible for this one. Oh well.
At least I got some fresh air and a frosty nose. Also took care of a couple of other little matters. Maybe next time . . .
