Whatzat?


Out in the pond the water boils...something is moving out there. It seems to have two heads...and two tails...but they are awfully close together...

Oh my. Seems we have interrupted an intimate moment between a male and female beaver. An awfully chilly place for love, doncha think? Around here beaver usually mate in December and then give birth in late March or April. Guess these two just got a late start.

i dunno-maybe they are picking up on more about the seasons than we are--feels Decemberish.

You know, some people keep bird life lists. I used to joke around about keeping a list of all the animals I have seen "Doing it". I never really kept that list... But I do know this: Beaver wasn't on it. Muskrat was...

Jennifer,
I have quite an extensive list, too. But beaver wasn't on mine either. Just goes to show you, there is always something new to see out there ;)
