Comment of the Week

“On cats direct-registering, the blog is incorrect. Camels and giraffes are not the only other animals that move in such a factor. Foxes and coyotes are a very notable examples, as are bounders like the fisher and other mustelids.

As the winter grows it gets more difficult to find motivation to get outside and enjoy the woods, but there is no better season for following various animal tracks.

*Incidentally, you’ll be hard-pressed to find fisher tracks near bodies of water – they weren’t named for their tastes.”
