calls from ponds and forests.
the fall and winter, only the plants and animals that are well prepared
can survive the cold, dark weather. This is the perfect time to
get outside and look for signs of animals and birds. Like a detective,
you can follow the evidence of foot prints or partly eaten food
to find out who has been out and about.
