I really didn't go far, but I was ducking tree branches, and getting smacked in the face.
I started following the coyote tracks (looked like two of them), searching for deer sheds, then I realized that they wouldn't leave me an antler!
Witch's nest! (Likely caused by fungus or something!)
On the lee side of the wetland, there is still running water. I was very careful!
Back I went the next day, this time on another part of the wetland. (Mon., Feb. 8th). The same tracks: fox, 2 coyotes, squirrels. I liked the sight of the dead leaves, all flattened by rain and snow. The water is very high in the wetland. My bridge is covered in water.
This tree is amazing. Lots of pileated woodpecker holes, but still standing. They say they get the bugs for the tree!
