Ive started an online tracking course with Lee Burton which has a rather extensive reading list on top of the lectures through out the course. Looks like Ill be investing a lot on more books.

The course covers:

Interpret track morhologies for mammal, reptile, amphibian and avain species, Identify tracks in the field for canines, felines, ungulates, rodents, proconidae, small ammmals, herps and birds

Recognize other animal sign (digs, burrows, beds, runs, debarking, marking, feeding, kill sites and skeletal remains)

Identify scats of mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds

Analyze and interpret animal gaits and differentiate between tracks of varying ages

Recognize fresh animal spoor and techniques for following trails

Improve pattern recognition skills

In the words of Ernest Thompson Seton “…the oldest writing known on the earth.” Tracking
