Read an Excerpt

Small and round, my tracks are not easy to spot.

My claws don’t stick out, so my tracks don’t leave claw marks in the mud or snow.

Whose track is that?
HINT: This animal looks like a large house cat.

It’s a Bobcat!

Bobcats are small cats, not much larger than a house cat. They are found in a wide variety of habitats, from forests to wetlands. When a bobcat walks, its back feet step directly into the tracks of its front feet. This makes it look as if it only leaves a single line of tracks.

*****

You can see this animal’s tracks when it migrates back home.

Its tracks are tiny and thin, which can make them hard to see.

Whose track is that?
HINT: This animal often runs for short distances before stoping to look for worms.

It’s a Robin!

When an American Robin runs across your lawn and turns its head, it’s not listening for worms. Instead, it’s looking for them. As its eyes are located on the side of its head.
