Winter is awesome! Here in Wisconsin, we are fortunate to have some great winter weather for many cool (pun intended) activities for those who embrace the season. Outdoors there are trails to be skied, snowmobiled, or snowshoed, hills for sledding, and ice for skating plus some beautiful scenery to enjoy! As a bonus, it’s a great time to be outside without any bugs! However, it can be easy to take some of our winter wonders for granted. This can mean falling into a rut of staying indoors and waiting for spring.
Before we settle too far into our slippers and sofa, we can look to some of our native wildlife for “Winspiration.” Snowshoe hares and weasels are great examples of embracing the season as they have traded their chestnut brown summer coats for ones of dazzling winter white.
For hares, snow provides excellent camouflage, insulation, and access to food from atop snowdrifts that is normally beyond reach. For weasels, a change of coat provides cover from aerial predators like owls and allows them to do their own hunting very quietly. Both species make the most of winter by making personal changes to capitalize on their situation.
