Just snoozing on its front porch...


Here's the beaver still in the same spot yesterday evening (see previous post). However, when Columbia Association people tried to approach it to check it out earlier that day, it jumped into the water and swam out to the lake. While they watched, it returned to its sleeping spot. It is odd behavior. The animal is very close to its burrow in the bank here, where it would normally spend the day. Perhaps the higher heat and humidity invaded its home.

Thanks to CA for responding and making sure the animal wasn't sick or injured.

(If you click on the beaver label on this post, you'll find photos of the beaver family temporarily flooded out of this burrow by Hurricane Sandy.)
