Pine martens are very adept when it comes to zipping their way across the forest canopy. This can also make them particularly hard to find as they may be hiding out in the branches above, well out of sight. However, the snow can give clues to their whereabouts as it makes it easier to find their tracks and pinpoint what cluster of trees one may be lurking in. While I personally have never had luck finding one during the summer months, they always seem to show up more in winter. I love the snow, but wouldn’t mind finding a marten without it around one day!
