  • The Next Step: Interpreting Animal Tracks, Trails and Sign
     Spring has finally arrived As soon as
openings appear in the ice of beaver
ponds, the first of the black-and-white ducks
arrive from the coastal estuaries:
goldeneyes, hooded merganser and
     With spring rain comes mud as the frost
comes out of the ground, ready to record
the tracks of both emergent mammals and
those that have been abroad all winter.
     As the earth thaws, the woods become
redolent with the odors long concealed
under the snow. The spring stirrings of
winter-dormant animals begin, with bears,
skunks, chipmunks and others venturing
abroad. This begins the subtle season for
trackers, where concentration is demanded
to distinguish animal sign from the
background. Join us!
