The evidence



Keep your fingers crossed that they're not aiming to turn the driveway into a beaver pond again.

I'm perplexed. I'll guess it's a quill of some sort. Porcupine?

Looks rather like a midnight snack to me. :)

Ack! Blooger is driving me crazy... I haven't been able to comment on my own &$#(*&% blog!

Well anyway, yep that's a beaver-chewed stick. They always leave those little tell-tale teeth marks.

Those rocks were down at the creekside, FC. I think they're cool too!

This afternoon I spent a bit of time clearing out the drainage pipe by the driveway. Yep a beaver had been trying to stuff it full of large sticks. (There was also some styrofoam, half of a picture frame, and a ratty blue hardhat.)

Beavers can be really annoying, but you have to admire them. When you see what they build, it's truly amazing. I saw a 5 tier beaver dam going up a slope on the south side of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal in Delaware. 5 terraced ponds....totally amazing. You almost expected to see little beavers with survey equipment and plans and well, hardhats. How big was that hardhat you found? Beaver sized?

I always love your pictures and adventures... hope those pesky beavers incorporate some drainange this year for your driveway! They are sure persistent buggers when they want to be!

I *thought* that's what it was, but it was a nicely obscure mystery.
