About 15 minutes later as I was cutting my banana into sections, a second and smaller one swam along and then up and over the bank and road it went. In the past years the Mister had permission from the game warden to take care of the beaver problem here and he did - for many years. Personally, we now don't have trees on our property that are of interest to these critters, but others do. It can be a problem, but is out of our hands now.
We wonder how many there really are that live nearby. In warm weather the far end of the lake contains water lilies, cattails and other aquatic plants that are the favorite foods of the beaver. Birch, alder, maple, willow and cherry trees all have tasty wood parts for meals as well. Beaver don't eat fish.
Monday morning lesson OVER!

Monday morning lesson OVER already? Oh shucks! I learned a lot here. Thanks for sharing this, now I know a little something about beavers.ReplyDelete
Well Monday I ended up spending over 4 hours in line renewing my drivers license. It was not a pleasant afternoon. There are times I want to move to a less populated area, possibly north to New Hampshire. Though there are beavers around here with the river and the lakes it's very rare to see around this neighborhood. Plenty of birds and geese though. Geese can be nasty!ReplyDelete
