Animals are About

The blessings of a fresh snowfall are the animal tracks plainly visible the next day.
There is a lot of wildlife around our yard, but we don't see all the activity.
It was a glorious walk, I can tell you.

The rabbit

Marks of a bird's wings when it swooped in and caught something? A rodent?
I did hear an owl the other evening. 

The prairie chicken that makes its way ever-so-slowly around the yard and house.

All this and more, just along our driveway.
Then down the road:

Probably deer.

Sunday morning:
I knew I was forgetting something. The vehicle tracks and my old dog, who now lies in the road waiting for me to turn and walk back.
