Beaver Lodges/ Nature Notes

 Lodge with open water on one side

Last week my husband and I were on a mission to visit beavers but none appeared, although someone had been out earlier in the morning. The evidence: open water and fresh footprints.

 A closer look of the lodge above

Shhh! They must have been sleeping as beavers tend to be nocturnal.

A second beaver lodge

No one will accuse this beaver family of being neat!

I did not know they are nocturnal. I was wondering f they were animals that hibernate through winter. I guess not.

Their lodges look interesting but next time they need to show their faces.

This is really neat. We are going to the Kawarthas for the long weekend. Any suggestions on something we can't miss?

Kate said...

Perhaps not neat, but certainly well-built, I'd bet.

I must be related to beavers in terms of not being neat. It is fascinating how they build there homes.

What a great close-up look at a beaver lodge. I'm constantly fascinated by animal ingenuity - their abilities are truly amazing. I love thinking about all the activity that goes on around a beaver lodge below the surface that we're not aware of...

This is nature at its finest. Animals allowed to do what they are created to do, without interruption. Great photos. Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog. God bless.

there are beavers in a lake nearby, but I have never seen them nor the hut. :( Love your shots.

How wonderful to see evidence that the beaver had been out foraging in the mild weather.

Viola said...

So interesting! Beavers are great builders! I've seen their houses inside.. I was stunned! Living room, bedroom etc etc.. And they are smart..

Lovely to see these pictures! :)

Beavers and very busy, but as I recall you got a picture of one not too long ago and it is my understanding that each person is allowed only one beaver pic in a lifetime. Well, that's what I heard...

I have never seen a beaver's lodge - they look amazing and blend in so well with their surroundings. Thanks for dropping by my blog. :)

Very cool beaver home. Reminds me of Eeyore's home that got moved. Also kind of sloppy.
