Tracks in the Snow

December, 2016
Heron tracks on the walkway

Portland doesn't get many snowfalls, so unless it causes everyday life to go awry, it's beautiful and a pleasure. This time, I noticed animal tracks along our walkway that gave clues to what critters are here and where they are coming and going. We suspected raccoons, and sure enough, they're all around our houseboats and decks. The river otters seem to like Ron's place. And herons are up and down the walkway, and were even up in the parking lot, well above river level.

River otter tracks. They are smaller and more
rounded than the raccoon's.
