My Neighbor, the American Beaver

The beaver live mostly on my end of the bog. They are out and about at dawn and dusk, usually just as the light is growing or going. But I was lucky this past Saturday morning while sitting on my porch. This big guy was chomping on all sorts of vegetation in the ponds that he helped to create. Click here to see my photos of the main dam. Above, he is sitting on a flooded hummock.

In these two photos, he is swimming about between two hummocks that would be perfect goose nest areas. Photos were taken with full 10x zoom with Kodak Z710 camera. My Canon is coming soon! (Story later!)

Below: his house. This lodge is visible from every window in the front of my house.

American Beaver (Castor canadensis)
When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.
