    Fortunately not all at once! And then the human came. Tracks are so fun to see.

  7. Karen Lang says:

    Love this 👏🧡

  8. This made me smile because I see similar prints on the beach from the various birds and dogs. 🙂

    I see the turkey and deer, but where’s the coyote? I’m blind this morning!

  10. pbmgarden says:

    Makes an interesting abstract pattern. Neighbors recently reported coyote sightings here.

  11. Dale says:

    Looks like there was a party going on there! Love the heart-shaped patterns here and there. Spreading the love!

  12. A busy place. Watch out, turkeys! Just had a funny thought. In New England, it’s not Coyote and Roadrunner. Instead, Coyote and Turkey. 😉

    gifts from our wild neighbors

  14. It is always fun to identify tracks in the snow.

  15. Dee Min says:

    So cool. You’re like a tracker 😉😊😉

  16. This map is a reminder of how much is going on in the middle of the night while we are asleep.

  17. Debbie says:

    Oh boy — a party!! Great shot, Eliza!

  18. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    Busy, busy! So lovely to see Eliza 💛

  19. Kris P says:

    A lovely way to track your wildlife visitors! My clues here are usually muddy footprints but, with limited rain, there are few of those.

  20. Fascinating! Hope everyone was passing through at different times! 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      The turkey and deer were the freshest (I saw the flock moving off when I arrived), the coyote was probably from the night before. Good thing for the former!

  21. Looks like a very busy intersection! 🙂

  22. Tina says:

    Wildlife “finger” painting! Great capture, Eliza!

  23. Val Boyko says:

    Turkey trot! Love it ❣️

  24. Love winter tracks, especially when I can identify them!🙂 Do you hear the coyotes or just see the tracks?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, we can hear them, esp. if they are close by. They mostly stay up on the ridges and come down into the fields at night to hunt. It is very rare to see one in the daytime. They know humans are dangerous!

  25. Those turkey tracks look jurassic! We mainly have an overabundance of rabbit tracks this winter, plus some coyote and fox.

  26. Widdershins says:

    Quite the parade. 🙂

  27. Dalo 2013 says:

    Another great positive about snow, makes for easier tracking 🙂

  28. Jet Eliot says:

    Tracking is an incredible pastime and how wonderful that you have used the snow to sharpen your skills, Eliza. Delightful post.

  29. Robin says:

    Nice collection! I really like being able to see the tracks so clearly after a good snow. It gives me a better idea of who is around here.

  30. Nice Eliza! Enjoyed seeing your tracks image!

  31. jillslawit says:

    All the arrows point to wild animal tracks.

  32. Wow! Nature’s patterns are stunningly beautiful (and so is your capture, Eliza!)!

  33. You’ve become a real girl scout, what with your tracking skill.

  34. jmankowsky says:

    This is a really fun pic!

  35. susurrus says:

    That is busy! I love the deer heart print.

  36. Brian Skeys says:

    Do you think the Coyote was tracking the deer?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I doubt it as the coyote track looked to be the oldest. Coyotes usually hunt smaller prey, like rodents, but will take a very young or injured deer, not a healthy adult.

  37. maryjane678 says:

    Were you a tracker in another life? Coyotes are so exotic to those if us who don’t have them – perhaps not so much for you.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I’ve always enjoyed tracking, seeing who comes by, mostly in the night when we are asleep. Today I saw fox, coyote and raccoon and squirrel tracks on my walk. Always fun to see!

  38. Priti says:

    Lovely ! You have taken beautifully 😊💕👌

  39. Oh … I wonder if the coyote was tracking the turkeys.
