Winter is often framed in poetry and other writings as synonymous with stillness. While stillness is certainly a more present quality of this season in Maine than it is for our other seasons, especially for our local hibernators, life is anything but still for many of our neighboring species; the movement of life is all the more obvious at this point in January. Over the past few weeks, I have seen the tracks of snowshoe hares, coyotes, ravens, mice, squirrels, and the focus for this week’s episode: bobcats.
