Tracks in the Snow

Early morning, and the tracks of a large bird, possibly a pheasant. I like to think there are pheasants around here. And the rare tracks of the dreaded purple loosestrife!

These tracks were made by a predator, judging by the distance I could follow them, circling, and checking every large clump of grass.

The leash gives you an idea of the size of the prints.

And on the way home, both leashes were attached to dogs, so I used a glove to show scale. There were crows on the other side of the ditch, not too far from these.

Great photos of the tracks. We have pheasants here and once in awhile I see their tracks. Could the predator be a coyote perhaps?

Maybe some morning you'll find the predator opposite your camera lens. :)
Again, such glistening snow. I'm starting to hope we actually get some this week.

These are wonderful, Judy... Tracks in the snow, even when identifiable, always have an air of mystery about them. :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

Tracks in the snow really do seem mysterious. Wondering about what made them ... where they lead ...

Beautiful snowy pictures, too. I love the sun sparklies!
