While wandering along the far bog and waiting for activity near the beaver’s den, we spotted this likely phoebe.
A beaver sends me a message. It is as loud as it looks.
The beavers would have stayed in their den for most of the winter. They likely have caches of young tree branches, bark, and twigs at the bottom of the bog around the den and under the ice.
The ice cover quickly disappeared over the past two weeks and I expect to see evidence of foraging in the woods surrounding the bog now that it is Spring.
