Look For It Now: Wing Tracks

When birds land and take off in the snow they can leave behind more than just footprints. Whether you have three feet of snow or just a dusting, as we do in Quechee at the moment, you can find these lovely signs in the snow. Look for the delicate little lines where their wings flapped to help them get off the ground. Check on the ground near your feeder or under conifer trees where birds forage for food, and look closely for these exquisite little tracks in the snow.
