The weight of the turkey that left these tracks, in combination with snow conditions, may have produced the interesting circular pattern. Tracks laid in snow expand as the snow melts, providing clues as to how recently the animal was there. 

Tackling tracking in the snow

The first snows have dusted the Upper Delaware River Region. Other than giving everyone something to crow about on social media, some areas saw just enough accumulation to provide early opportunities for tracking animals and learning more about their “hidden” lives.

This is Walker Lake in Shohola, PA looking north. Many trees are still green or pale yellow, with a few red trees, which are probably maple. There is some fall color evident, but paler than in normal years.
 

The reason for those dull fall colors

Fall is here, and most of us have already been raking or blowing a few leaves off the driveway or walkways. A couple of things are evident with the colors of the autumn leaves this year: a lot of the leaves are still green (or took longer to change color), and the leaves that did turn color seemed to be a duller red or yellow.

These reproductions of, from left, a coyote skull, a white-tailed deer skull and an opossum skull will be used by students in Pike and Wayne county high schools to study mammals inhabiting the Upper Delaware River region in preparation for the 33rd annual Pike/Wayne Envirothon.
 

Studying ahead with skulls

With Halloween fading in the rearview mirror, we’ve certainly seen our share of skeletons, skulls and bones adorning houses and businesses in the Upper Delaware River region.
