I had a chance to poke around Minebank Run the other day and observed something odd. The beaver dam has been unchanged for several weeks. This even though the beaver is still active in the area--that's easily evident from the sticks in the water left over from its eating. As well as the trees it has cut down. But for some reason it's not building a dam. Nor did I see a food cache anywhere.

I did, though capture a coyote. This is the second time I've done that. I was struck by the fact that it was in the same place that I have photographed a fox. As I understand, the coyotes will become the alpha predator in the area, and will drive down the fox population. We'll see.

Meanwhile the residents are having fun in the park. Hope you are too.

The beaver (or beavers?) is active in Minebank Run. It's hard to see in these photographs, but the dam is slightly larger. Perhaps you can see that it extends a little more on the right side of the photograph?

I've also captured two photographs and a video. 

And I captured this photograph too. It sure looks to me like the fox is marking his territory on the tree the beaver cut down.

Ain't life grand?
