Who Was That?

When I went out to check the track in yesterday’s post, I also saw interesting tracks in the snow beneath the suet feeder.  Can anyone help me identify these?  Sharkey?


At this point, I picked up the camera, prepared myself and went back out to the scene.  I found some fresh tracks where the snow was not as deep.


As you can see, they are paw prints — just at tiny bit wider than my thumb.  Looks too big for a mouse, and it looks like un-mouse-like pads on the paws.

Lunch call.  Gotta go.

  1. I wish I knew what they were. I’ve sadly let my animal tracking skills atrophy. I’m sure one of the other commenters is right. I’m sure it’s a rodent of some sort.

    • The paw prints lead directly to wiggles like those in the pic. My first thought was a mouse. It’s impossible to tell on the wiggles under the tree. Snow has drifted in and obliterated paw prints.

  2. Chipmunk, squirrel…some small animal sniffing around from suet chunks that have fallen when the birds eat it.
