January #SuperSnap

This month’s #SuperSnap was nominated by @eaglecon. Thanks for this fantastic photo series of a pileated woodpecker (Dryocopus pileastus) in action from Waupaca county! Fun fact: the pileated woodpecker’s brain is completely protected by a reinforced skull and neck. This protection is important since the woodpecker pecks into trees for carpenter ant snacks and “drums” for mates.

August #SuperSnap

This month’s #SuperSnap comes to us from @Snowdigger.  Although we’re still enjoying the late summer here in Wisconsin, we couldn’t resist sharing this snowy winter scene featuring a coyote.  There are also signs of another critter who occupies this wood; look closely to see trees that have been felled by beaver.

This month’s #SuperSnap selection goes to this agile fisher nominated by @Snowdigger:

Fishers (Martes pennanti) are medium sized mustelids with slinky-like bodies and dark fur. Despite the name, fishers seldom eat fish. Instead, their diets consist of small mammals, and are one of a handful of animals capable of preying on porcupines. Fishers were reintroduced to Wisconsin in the 1950s, and have done well in the state since then – so well, in fact, that Wisconsin fishers have been re-located for reintroduction efforts in other states.
