I’ve been working on a couple of new entries to the blog and had hoped to have them posted by now. The recent snow which came to town on January 30 closed the Museum for a few days and I haven’t had the time to complete my work.
I did, however, manage to get a few photos of some interesting happenings out on the Outdoor Exhibits trails…
Finding tracks in the snow is fun, but it’s fleeting. The snow that these tracks were left in are now mush, washed away by the rain.
There were many tracks in the snow on Tuesday morning (Feb 2), tracks of birds, feral cats, Gray Fox, as well as the animals depicted here in the photos. Just a few short hours later, they were all gone, vanished, as if the creatures that made them had never been there.
It’s often tracks left in the snow that alerts you to the animals in the area, their passings never being discovered if not for the snow.
The Groundhog which made an appearance on January 13th also came out of hiding on Groundhog Day.
Enjoy the snow while it lasts!
