Fooled Me

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 . . .

  1. I love winter for all of the tracks. We have plenty around the pond’s water opening–everyone comes for fresh water.

    • I’ll have a mystery track for you tomorrow. Perhaps you can help me with that one. I’m obviously not good at identifying tracks.
