"Hi Rob, great photos.  Our Aplodontia line their burrows with sword ferns.  Do you know what that shrub was?  "

"Hi Rob, Pictures are beautiful, I've been passing them around the office.  I'm not sure if they are Lynx, I would think that Lynx tracks would have more of a halo around the toes; however I have never seen Lynx tracks in person. …"

"Well the direct register walk, the pitch of the feet, the asymmetry in the toes all says likely "cat."  But, the information present in the photos is inconclusive.  Do you have any more close up photos of clear tracks?  Do…"

Track ID Request

Came across these tracks on a trail at around 1700 meters elevation on a ridgeline above some old cutblocks. Lots of snowshoe hare tracks in the area. Thinking they are probably Lynx tracks but would like to confirm with more knowledgable folks on this site. Any guesses? Thanks,RobSee More

Mountain Beaver Burrows

Thought I would share these photos taken late September in the North Cascades (Coquihalla Mountains of SW British Columbia). I'm sure they are Mountain Beaver burrows but these are the first I've seen. Neat throw mounds and lots of cut vegetation near the burrows. Numerous burrows were located all in fairly wet (swampy) areas along a major drainage. Enjoy!RobSee More

"Your welcome. I think that your best bet is Doug' squirrel. But, did you also look at the scarring on the second tree on the right? Let us know if you think you think you figured it out... : )"

"Thanks for the welcome and reply, Filip. Greatly appreciated. After looking at your response the other day I was "pretty sure" but not positive that it wasn't a tree strike that did the damage. I was internally very hopeful that I…"

"I have not heard of marten or weasels doing this kind of damage to trees. Weasels are known to line their homes with the fur of other animals and with grasses. Weasels sometimes trail a vole or mouse to its home, kill it, eat it and sleep in their…"

Mystery Sign ID Request

Hi folks - recently participated in a tracking workshop with Jason and joined the forum as a result. Looks like a great resource! I've got a question for you folks...we have a recently dead cedar tree approximately 1.5' diameter located fairly close to the roadside in one of our day use areas in Mt Seymour Provincial Park located in North Vancouver, BC. The tree has some signifigant bark damage - I'm sure it's not natural. The bark damage is predominantly on one side of the tree, but to a…See More
