What the Snow Melt Left Behind

What is this? A map of the Delta, made from space? Canals on Mars?

No, something a little closer to home.

Remember the mouse prints in the snow? This is the same area of the yard, minus the white stuff.  The little trails through the grass were dug by mice and voles during the winter to avoid the kind of exposure our unseen friend had on the way to the water.

Although it looks like the lawn is damaged, a month from now it won’t even be visible. Soon enough, those little critters will be more worried about staying out of the mower’s way than the owl’s!
