snow tracks

Whether it's a good day or bad day often depends on your point of view. Here is something interesting that John and I found on our Sunday afternoon walk.
Can you tell what it is?Rodent prints along the snow...stopped in mid track by our resident hawk. Are the long marks on the right from the hawk's tail feathers, or maybe it's claws?

I'm guessing the hawk thought it was a good day. Not so good for the rodent.

I don't watch the nature shows when they give a dose of reality such as this :-(

But what a photographic find!..

I'm always thrilled to see tracks in the snow. Wouldn't have been able to guess of these ones though.

Really, a rare find.
Such a treat for the camera :)
and those of us viewing along with you.

Hi! I bet your right. We saw a hawk swoop down and catch a bat once. It was exciting.
That or a flying rodent. maybe the end point was really the landing point and then she continued on foot. On her secret rodent mission. Ha!
I haven't been online much in 2009 so I'm catching up on some blogs.
Have a great day!

Ooooh! Footprints start to tell a story, don't they? Great observational skills i'd say!
