Our Beavers have been VERY busy getting ready for winter. Notice the new mud on top of the lodge and the twigs and branches further out in the water. The mud came from the bottom of the lake--notice the dark colored leaves. The mud will dry and fill in the holes between the branches and twigs so that the lodge is sealed tight for the winter--no wind will be able to get through those cracks. The twigs and branches in the lake will freeze into a solid sheet of ice and allow the beavers to slip UNDER the ice in the winter to nibble on the branches. This way they can stay toasty warm all winter.
