Description

FalconGuides’ Scats and Tracks of North America – A Field Guide to the Signs of Nearly 150 Wildlife Species

A coast-to-coast guide to recognizing what critters went before you—from North America’s most respected publisher of information on outdoor recreation and the great outdoors.

With unparalleled content, each of the nearly 150 species in FalconGuides’ Scats and Tracks of North America is described with concisely worded yet detailed information, easily accessible by fast and easy navigation. Simple-to-use and intuitively designed, field-friendly and richly illustrated, this app is the key to starting off your outing on the right track!

Was that track on the trail left by a coyote or a fox? A black bear or a grizzly? A bobwhite or a grouse? Was that scat deposited by a bobcat or a lynx? Covering the continent’s most common or characteristic species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians north of Mexico, FalconGuides’ Scats and Tracks of North America helps you determine just what has passed your way and could still be nearby.

This incomparable reference also includes rare species of particular interest or significance, such as the jaguarundi, the polar bear, and the wolverine.

What’s in this app:

· Detailed illustrations of scats, tracks, gait patterns, and other signs of an animal’s presence, carefully organized by species, track types, and scat types. See a track with two toes forming a hard, cloven hoof? Instantly view all related tracks to determine if it’s a moose, a mule deer, or an elk. See scat that resembles cords, long and thick? Visually compare against all related scat types to determine if it’s a badger or a black bear.

· Individual range maps for all species.

· Easy-reference descriptions of all scats and tracks with precise measurements.

· Built-in ruler for more accurate field identification.

· An identification key and glossary of tracking terms.

· Instantly view hundreds of color images for every species with built-in links to Google Images or Flickr.

· Document your finds using the Sightings feature. More than just a field notebook, you can capture images of your find; record date, time, and precise location; and write field notes for analysis and sharing.

· Share your sightings instantly with friends and colleagues via email, Facebook, and Twitter right from the app!

Written by Dr. James C. Halfpenny, one of the world’s leading experts on animal tracking and author of numerous books on the subject of scats and tracks field identification. Illustrated by Todd Telander, an award-winning natural science illustrator, wildlife artist, and amateur tracker.

Very cool app.

:
I've got a couple of these books from Falcon, which I really like and have found really useful. When I saw the free Backyard version of this app I had to get it. My kids loved it, but the number of species in it is pretty limited. So I upgraded to this one, which is basically the app version of the entire book, but way better since you can navigate by track, scat, or species much easier than thumbing through pages in a book. My favorite is the sightings feature and also the Google and Flickr image feature. Can't do that with a book! It also has a linked glossary which is helpful and a whole section called Tracking 101, which has a lot of useful info. Awesome stuff. Thanks, Falcon!

4/5 stars

Overall good, but more species would be nice

:
85 mammals, 35 birds, 30 amphibians and lizards. It would be nice to drop some of the birds
and amphibians for more mammals such as domestic dog and domestic cat. Seems to occasionally
crash if you flip through "All species" too fast...

5/5 stars

Handy tool for hikers

:
Fantastic little app! So much faster and easier than toting around a book. I love all the pics that make it easy to go to the section you want. Lots of details about the large variety of animals in the program. Very user friendly. The ruler is a great addition as is the ability to keep notes and photos of your own sightings. We are frequent hikers in the Sierra Nevada mountains and will definitely be able to put this app to some good use. Sure could have used it last month when we were snowshoeing up at Tahoe. Saw several interesting tracks that day that we wondered about. Looking forward to being able to having this handy next time we head out!

I also highly recommend the Falcon Guide Day Hike books. Tons of great hikes. The books cut through the sometimes annoying extra fluff found in most other hiking books and get straight to the point which is plenty of great hikes to pick from. Great directions to the trailheads too. I spent July 4th one year on a day hike to a beautiful secluded lake up in the mountains near Lake Tahoe. Hiking back down the trail, stopped and sat on a large rock watching the fireworks going off over Lake Tahoe. Such a stunning view. Totally enjoyed the hike, the little hidden gem of water and the view of the fireworks. Never knew about that place till I saw it in one of my Falcon Guide day hike books. I probably have half a dozen books of hiking trails located within a few hours from home and half of those are Falcon Guides. Love them!
