Tracks in the Snow

Stump with paw printsWith the extremely cold winter we've experienced this year I have not been able (or desired to) get out and do a photo walk like I enjoy doing in the summer and fall of the year.

My focus on yesterdays walk was the tracks left in the snow. I focused was on bunny and squirrel tracks and mostly in my own yard and alley driveway. It seems evident that the bunny has taken up residency underneath my utility trailer and my little camper.

I did my best to show only critter footprints here. I don't believe there are any human footprints here unless there are some at the squirrel feeding station.

There is a lot of tracks there.  You must feed them well for them to stay around.  Hope spring arrives soon.  No snow here but lots of rain, more than normal.

I do feed them well Rose Mary Justice (that's why I can not afford to retire, to many mouths to feed). After many days of subzero temps we are finally realizing "near normal" temps and it's a real blessing.

I have to say that I prefer critter tracks when they are in the sand by the ocean but these will do fine.

Bob "RealMan" Timm I love your 'Tracks in the Snow" post because I look at the tracks in my yard most days when I go out to feed my birds & squirrels.  we don't have bunnies very often but deer, raccoons and occasional feral cat.

I'd like to experience that Joe Pryor . It would ne nice to take a month out of our harsh winter and sit on a nice beach sometime.

These pictures of all that snow leave me shivering in my boots, Bob! Oh wait... I'm wearing sandals not boots!

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) 8 months ago

Thank you Mary Yonkers . Once in a while we see a deer. I've seen a raccoon maybe two times in 20 years and I'd prefer NOT to see any cats because they scare the other critters away.

I wish I was there Nina Hollander ... of course I'm always wishing I was were ever you are .

Hi Bob - no snow and no tracks here. No rain at the moment but it "feels" as if it could arrive soon. Enjoy your winter scenes.

Bob "RealMan" Timm I have to tell you that the bunnies are still good eating this time of year!

Posted by Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI, Presence, Persistence & Perseverance (HomeSmart Realty West & Geneva Financial, Llc.) 8 months ago

The tracks I see are from the deer who raid my hay shed (WHY can't they eat what's loose instead of tearing a bale apart?) and from the turkeys who rummage through the hay and eat the "recycled grain" outside my horse's shelter. Since the dogs go out with me to feed, those tracks get a bit messed up.

11 this morning - 47 this afternoon and the snow is melting beautifully...

I actually do Michael Jacobs but still spring could arrive anytime and that would be just fine with me.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) 8 months ago

Could happen Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI but if I'm going to harvest one I'd prefer to get one of those big Jacks so it could feed the whole family. The little ones around the house would hardly make a decent sandwich.

Bob It was actually a real March day here in Philly cool and windy. I love your photos never had a real snow day here this year 

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 8 months ago

Sounds like you've got a great place there Marte Cliff . I'd love to have a hobby farm or a least a few acres.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) 8 months ago

Hannah Williams we were spared the blizzard that hit Bismarck ND and MLPS MN on Saturday. We did have a couple of storms this year but the worst of our winter was that January and February were both 20 degrees colder then the 500 year average.

Bob, there are a lot of wildlife that hang around without seeing them.  Living in the country we see many more than you do

Posted by William Feela, Realtor, Whispering Pines Realty 651-674-5999 No. (WHISPERING PINES REALTY) 8 months ago

I'd love to live in the country and enjoy the view... and lack of city taxes William Feela .

Morning Bob.

Right now the outside temp is 50º.  Forecast high for today is 63.  Are you ready to move south yet??? LOL

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) 8 months ago

After a snowfall is a great time to see tracks of those who passed through overnight. Usually we have teeny weeny bird tracks - it looks like they hop under our cars. And then of course lots of deer tracks.

Maybe last month James Dray but now that I see the light at the end of the wintery tunnel I'm going to wait it out.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) 8 months ago

Kat Palmiotti our bunny likes to hide under the car as well as the birds. I'm assuming they go there when the engine is still warm.

I'm sitting here smiling.  Recently, my son-in-law discovered shoe tracks in the snow outside my 15 year old granddaughter's window. He worried someone may have been trying to kidnap her.  So, what does he do? He leashes up their little wire haired terrier, and the two set out to track those footprints.  It was near dawn, and the pair ended up in front of the house belonging to a boy who is my granddaughter's classmate.  After relief set in, my granddaughter was told that any evening visitors needed to come to the front door!

It sounds like she knew he was there which is a good thing Myrl Jeffcoat as opposed to a window peeker.

Good morning Bob. I don't see any pictures here. :( Check it out now.

I don't know what's up with that Sheila Anderson . I see them and from the comments at least 2 others specifically refer to them. I will visit AR in the incognito browsing mode and see if they still show up.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) 8 months ago

Sheila Anderson I just checked it out as a visiter and they do show up for me.

Hello Bob, Bunnies need a home in the winter time to stay out of the snow but these need to come out and look for food sometimes.

 

Posted by Will Hamm, "Where There's a Will, There's a Way!" (Hamm Homes) 8 months ago

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm, I don't get to see snow much, except for the pictures so these photos are a treat for me. Glad those little creatures were able to find a safe, warmer spot. 

Posted by Beth Atalay, Cam Realty of Clermont FL (Cam Realty and Property Management) 8 months ago

I wish I would see the actual bunnies more often Will Hamm instead of just their tracks but they are of course wild and not tame rabbits.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) 8 months ago

I do my best to keep them safe Beth Atalay but on occasion a ferrel cat will wander into the neighborhood. I have set up traps for those cats and when I catch them I relocate them.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) 8 months ago

Brrrrr. Sure is pretty though. Pretty cold. I think I will stick with rain and 70 degees.
