Hare of the Frog, Fox of the Spur
Tracking conditions at Frog Lake were excellent, and when they turned their eyes away from the scenery and down at the ground, the volunteers were rewarded with crystal-clear snowshoe hare tracks.
Surprised that the hare isn't snow white? I was, too, a little bit, but it turns out not all of them make the annual change to white fur. Good to know, and to see for ourselves!
some very cool footage from the Cooper Spur area: our lowest elevation fox sighting yet.
Those photos were snapped with our newest wildlife camera, and it came away from its first mission a little worse for the wear. Looks like a mouse tried to make a shelter out of it, and things didn't work out as planned for either party.
