We get little [and big] visitors all the time. The edges of the creek bed are full of prints. Here are some that we found this week.
So, who left these tracks? With this handy-dandy Northwoods Tracks guide - put out by the Wildlife Conservation Society - we can find out. [We got ours at the Muscatatuck NWR Nature Center.]
According to the guide, these tracks were raccoon:
These were possum. [Or opossum, if you insist. But only if you insist.]
So, there you have it.
Once in a while, if I'm really lucky, we find these tracks on the creek bed.
