Tracks in the Snow

I think a white-tail deer made this track, but hoofprints weren't clear. What's your guess? Anyone?

We also saw, Shelly and I upon a walk, the furry foot and bony foreleg of a beast that I believe belong to a badger. I won't show you the pictures I took (because I wanted another opinion regarding the animal's identity). It had paw pads like those of a dog, but claws more than an inch long and slightly curved. There was some fur left on the foot. I didn't think there were predators for badgers, but am told coyotes can kill them.

I'm going to go look on Google images, see what's what.

And there was a large owl in the trees by the yard, but I couldn't get a good photo.


  1. Snow! How soon I have forgotten what it is like to experience snow this early in the season. You are hearty folk in the country. I love the first few weeks of the snowy season, but only the first few weeks. Lovely picture.

    1. I have gotten my old ski pants (which fit, as opposed to my new ones, size Small, that are way too big and too long; what's up with that, Sears?) repaired by the town seamstress and have begun wearing them when I go out in the morning, but by afternoon they are not needed ... there is water laying in the streets.
