April Sayre’s Book Put On Some Antlers And Walk Like a Moose

Do you know a raccoon

by its smell? A deer by

its tracks? The difference

between the call of a tree

frog and the call of a bird?

To find animals, many field

scientists work like detectives,

looking for natural clues.

A middle grade nonfiction book about field scientists and how they study animals.
