This winter, with snowfall flirting with breaking a record, we spent weeks at the equator, enjoying the antics of animals we don’t see in New England.
All during our absence we imagined the trail cameras at the pond would capture weeks of animal behavior. Upon our return we had to snowshoe through the woods to retrieve a frozen camera, buried under feet of ice and snow.
Even tracks in the snow have been few and hard to read. We’ve seen a rabbit regularly, bright red fox now and then, and a few tracks of coyote, deer and vole. Our imagination is busy trying to visualize all the animal life coping through these freezing, snow covered days.
