Always a pleasure to catch the beautiful Canada Warbler and today we’ve caught 4! Unfortunately this species is listed as Threatened on the Species at Risk Act as it has declined by 62% between 1970 and 2014.

Just for fun – Snow-tracking Quiz.

We have just announced our Wildlife Snow-tracking for Professionals Course, and thought we’d shrug off the seriousness for a moment, and offer up a Just for fun – Snow-tracking Quiz in celebration.

The Wildlife Snow-tracking for Professionals Course has been a long time coming. The materials and techniques have been compiled over a decade. Last December we tested some of the materials through a condensed workshop, primarily aimed at students, but attended by students, naturalists, hunters, field biologists, and professional trackers. We received a lot of good feedback, identified some gaps, and are ready to offer a full-on 2-day course aimed primarily at professionals, but open to anyone who is interested in learning to identify wildlife tracks in snow.

Enjoy the quiz.
