Bobcats, named for their short, bobbed tail, spend about 75-80% of their time moving, resting only two to three hours at any one rest site.

Bobcats are making a remarkable recovery after suffering local extinctions in the last century from habitat loss and overhunting.

This coyote’s paw pad gives a good indication of the print the animal leaves behind in the snow.

Bull moose bellow loudly to attract mates. Must have worked for this guy.

Bull moose antlers can span up to 5 feet & weigh about 35 lbs.

Great blue heron, a wading bird known for quickly striking its prey with its beak.

White-tail deer leave prints similar in shape to moose, but significantly smaller.

While our research focuses on large, wide-ranging predators, it’s clear that many of the same locations attract a wide variety of animals, including this rabbit.
