    After a cold, wet spring summer
has arrived early. The sun climbing
higher in the sky increases
evaporation on ponds and lakes,
exposing muddy and sandy banks
to record animal movement. These
thin strips are often used by
predators to move around their
hunting range and semi-aquatic
mammals must cross them to get
to rolling sites and food.
Sandpipers patrol their margins
and herons come ashore to
consume fish and frogs. The result
is a boon to the tracker interested
in identifying and interpreting the
hidden lives of wild animals.
