"A BEAVER'S DAY IN THE SUN"

Beaver - North American (5 Photos)

 

The following photos were taken in full sunlight approximately an hour before sunset.

 

Figuratively, to have "a day in the sun" can mean having a heyday or you have reached the highest possible level of success. This family of beavers, through their hard work, have made a series of wet ponds into a connected eco-system where wildlife not only survives, but thrives. In Spring & Summer, many bird species including shorebirds & ducks, visit these ponds, some even nesting. And, of course, with an ample source water, even during the hottest months and ample food sources, there are mammals such as deer, coyotes & even minks.

 

So, in my book, the beavers have reached the highest possible level of success by creating a viable home for not only their species but many others as well.

 

One beaver swam over to the pond's edge and did some mud dredging which he/she left on the remaining ice of the shoreline (Photo #1).  I believe there is a small lodge (or bolt hole) dug into the bank close by and the mud is probably for some future use. 

 

Having done some of the "heavy lifting", it was time for some sun & grooming before proceeding onto other matters such as dam repairs (Photo #2 through Photo #5).
