Eleanor. That is “ice that has patterns on it.”

Elijah. That says “a black snake.” We looked and looked, but didn’t find any and decided it was probably too cold still.

Grace. That is “deer scat.” Luckily we find it every time!

Our ice sheet in the woods was gone too. Just a little ice left in the deepest part of the ravine.

We found these last week too on the edge of the woods. Sarah from CREA thought they might be owl pellets.

Elijah: “Look, a deer has bitten this bud off.”
