Beavers Are Back

This is a beaver hutch on one of our next door neighbors property.

Hubby says it’s the biggest hutch he’s ever seen and thinks it’s a big family of them. This spring the kits will be sent out to make their own homes in another area but usually close to the parents.

With all of the snow melt and ice melt there’s plenty of room for them to venture out in the flooded waters.
This shows the water building on our side of the property.
There’s plenty of woodland for them to chew down the trees and make more homes and enlarge the main home. Of course, a lot of the trees will be used for feeding their large families.

We let them stay as long as they’re not flooding any of the pasture or routing the water that will harm neighboring property. They’re amazing construction creatures and fun to watch at work when they think no humans are close and watching.
