Tracks in the snow
We saw a lot of these tracks in the snow last weekend. The owner of these tracks must have been pretty small compared to his feet because they were pretty much right on top of the snow. They're bigger than coyote tracks. I'm afraid my Animal Tracks of Ontario was not much help as this animal did not have the courtesy to leave a distinct track in a typical pattern. Some of the candidates, in my mind, anyway, are the fisher, marten, bobcat or lynx. Luckily, my living is not dependant on my ability to identify tracks.
