Back At The Creek...

A pair of beavers were out before sunrise.  First, the smaller one climbed onto a log and began grooming.  Soon the larger one came over to join in...





Many animals engage in mutual grooming...





Beavers are interesting and entertaining to watch...








From the same location, on a different day, I saw muskrats gathering dried weeds...













A beaver was returning to the den with a sapling...



This mink was taking a large catfish to it's den; probably to feed young ones...



Not far away, a woodcock was probing the muddy bank for a meal...





I interrupted a young bald eagle feeding in a hay field.  It flew to a tree and began wiping it's beak...





A male eastern towhee was perched near the road greeting the morning...



The number of turkey gobblers has been increasing as the males compete for hens that have not been bred yet...







Before leaving I checked on the great horned owl chicks.  They are getting bigger everyday...



Thanks for visiting, be well, and come back soon.
