Signs of Wildlife--Tracks, Scratches, Burrows and Yes, Even That!
Sometimes we don't see wildlife itself, but we happen on signs that it was there before us. While the most common would be tracks or scat, more subtle signs are present. It's a delight to recognize an animal's passing from scratches it might have left, it's burrow, dried mud on trees, or even the trail itself. Please feel free to add your own images and interpretations of wildlife signs.
