Muskrats Preparing For Spring

I watched as two muskrats gathered leaves to line their den earlier this week...


After gathering a mouthful each muskrat would return to the creek and take the leaves to a den.  They were exploring three abandoned beaver dens and seemed to be unable to make a decision...




The process continued for quite some time, with the muskrats meeting in the water to discuss their progress...




Then, each would return to the task at hand...




 
I hope this activity means there will soon be some baby muskrats to photograph...
 

 
Thanks for visiting, be well and come back soon.
