We've been watching the beavers from our living-room window this morning. Once we knew they were back we've been sitting here waiting and hoping we might see some activity, we weren't disappointed. Two large healthy adults are chewing on their breakfast as I type. They will eat ash, birch, maple and alder leaves but prefer poplar and aspen. For winter they will store branches on the floor of the pond by anchoring the branch securely into the mud. They are also known to eat water lilies, cattails, and grasses growing around the pond.  We are amazed at the variety and amount of wildlife we see from the comfort of our home deep in the bush near Bancroft. Sorry no picture, we are watching this activity through binoculars.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels Marvin and Annie.
