I mentioned once before that I was pretty sure that I had spotted a beaver in my neighbor's yard, near the creek. Today the animal in question came into my yard and stayed long enough that I could get photos of it – and I also had another witness. It is always nice when you learn that you were not hallucinating…but as a commenter on this post identified, it was a groundhog/woodchuck, not a beaver. I look forward to providing prognostication services regarding the end of winter on my blog in the not too distant future! In the mean time, here are a couple of the photos I took.
