Trackards for North American Mammals
The Companion Guide to Trackards for North American
by David Brown
Please see the products page.
Winter is here once again and with it the excitement of
being able to trail animals for a distance to learn about
their secret lives and relationships with habitat. Frozen
ponds are the first to hold a skim of snow that melts off
the still unfrozen ground..On them one can find early
sign of snowshoe hares, desperate to conceal their
new white fur against an equally white background.
There, too, one may find the signs of their predators
like the gray fox and fisher that left these trails in a
frozen marsh in Saugus, Massachusetts. Another
advantage of the cold season is the low winter light
that casts subtle tracks into sharp relief. Join me for
another exciting season of tracking adventures in the
"accidental wilderness" of the Quabbin region as well
as at other natural areas in New England.
