The Mystery Marks
The snow has been moved away in that area where you see all of those leaves and earth. There is also a smaller area back farther with the same thing. It looks as if that branch has been moved back and forth across the ground to make that happen, but who or what did it?
At first glance I thought maybe a person went by and moved this branch. People can do the strangest things, even out in a forest like this one. But after closer examination I'm fairly sure it was another kind of animal that did this. The question is why? And how do I know?
So maybe an animal was nosing around around and under this branch for some reason. I don't know why it did it. Maybe it was looking for food. Maybe it wanted the branch, which is highly unlikely. I think for now this will remain a mystery, but I'll keep watching. Maybe time will reveal the secret. This is very interesting. Have you ever seen anything like this before? Have you ever seen any other type of mystery marks outside?
I'll be back next time, and hopefully a little more very soon.
