A bobcat track displays an overall rounded shape; heel pad (bottom of photo) is large relative compared to toe pads and no claw marks show.

The coyote’s track cut through a foot of new snow. As I continued on its trail, the gentle swooshing of my snowshoes the only sound in the still morning, I read the unfolding narrative of the animal’s travels from the prior night.

True to its nocturnal nature, this Eastern red-backed salamander was on the move past midnight, making its way through the rain-dampened leaf litter. Though the stripe along the back in this species is usually more reddish, this specimen sported a pale orange coloration.

As fall advances in the Upper Delaware River region, signs of animal activity remind us that winter is on its way. For now, the colorful foliage claims our attention, and it’s easy to spot the heightened movement of squirrels and chipmunks as they prepare for the leaner months.
