Busy Critter


 Walking on the trails this past Winter has been easy because we haven't had much snow.  I can't help but wonder if that's why I've been seeing so much beaver work.  Examining the larger trees that they chewed the bark off of, I couldn't help but notice that the bark was removed about 30" up from the ground, meaning they stand upright bracing themselves with their tails.  I know I can't catch one in the act, but I would love to!  They also seem to prefer Beech trees.  Now I'm wondering if it tastes like Beech-Nut Gum.  

seeing, saying, sharing...wondering...

We have also seen more beaver activity in the nearby park, but have also never been able to spot one.

I had no idea they use those big flat tails to brace themselves when they stand! So they do serve a good purpose!

Wow, they were pretty busy on that tree. You need to set up a motion activated camera then you can watch them at work

How wonderful that you have different wildlife to observe. And for your followers to enjoy in your pictures. Catching a beaver working away would be so much fun.
