Went to the upper swamp area looking to see how the duck population was doing and came across this beaver hut. This is the first hut that I have seen on the property, but then again I haven’t been here or the lower swamp for two years. I can see where beaver have made their home in the pond by digging out tunnels in the bank. I have posted before about some of the damage they do, but for now it is nothing so serious that something has to be done about them.
I am getting fat, there is no doubt about that. I have been woefully lacking in an exercise routine since neck surgery last November. Today I decided to start walking. maybe burn a few calories and get some strength and wind back. I took a mile walk to a deer stand and came back along the pond. About half way back I came upon what seemed to be a beaver playground. Two trees in particular caught my eye.
