Close observation of our surroundings is one of the biggest joys of being outdoors. And we humans--the naming animal--enjoy ourselves more when we know, or can find out, what we're observing. An effortless carry in a pocket or day pack, this 48-card deck satisfies our hardwired urge to identify. A picture of a bird's or animal's footprints appears on one side of each card; the other side names the creature and presents its taxonomic data, physical characteristics, footprint size, and diet, and notes on its natural history.
How do you tell a badger's track from a porcupine's, or a red-headed woodpecker's from a redtailed hawk's? Animal & Bird Tracks will reveal the contrasts at a glance. You'll savor your new knowledge, improve your trail craft, and get even more pleasure from the time you spend with nature.
