Animal Tracks in Snow #3 of 4

Asked January 14, 2018, 4:34 PM EST

Greetings!
My name is Wanda and this is the third of 4 submissions.
The first submission includes the details of the location where these tracks were observed.

This third set of three continues the possibly injured bird of some sort. Feather marks are again visible in some of the photos. Another break appears near the two stale muffins Mom threw out where it looks like the bird hopped and face-planted, then tried again.

If my suspicions are incorrect please let me know and tell me why. I want to learn other identifying indicators for future use.

Last set of three coming up:

Faribault County Minnesota
