Since the latest storm and raging river episode I think perhaps Paddy has taken a break from his work as I discovered this lounge chair in the river just 5 feet away from his lodge.

Is Paddy the Beaver still assessing the damage from the storms or has he moved on to calmer waters?

Is the mud on the sides of his lodge a sign of his activity or is it the receding water marks?

How will Paddy the Beaver get this one down?

Mother Nature made her next move and the tree is now solidly on the ground, off of the timber pedestal, with the limbs still stuck up above. 


Video 36 <HERE>

Speechless as the river waters rage down the beaver channel, past the lodge, and break apart the dam.

We’ve had many days of above average temperatures that caused early snow melt in the middle of winter followed by heavy rain (vs. snow) all to converge at once.

 Timberrrrrrr Take 2!

Paddy the Beaver has managed to balance his work beyond belief leaving just a few bites undone!

It was so tempting to walk over and just push this tree over, however I left it to unfold naturally with Paddy and Mother Nature writing the story.

 


Video 34 <HERE>

Here is more of this magic act seen a few days later from every angle.

The tree is only resting on a few thin branches up above and really just needs one good push from Old Mother West Wind.

I SAW PADDY THE BEAVER!

Oh my goodness! Today was the day! In the midst of a grey sloppy walk I saw Paddy the Beaver and boy was he CUTE!

He was working just below the dam and sat about 20 inches tall with his good size tail as his prop. He looked to be a 2-3 year old juvenile at about 40lbs tops all sopping wet.

He was 6 ft away from me down in the beaver canal and immediately jumped from below the dam up and over the layered logs and dove directly into the water swimming diagonally straight to the entrance of what I can now confirm is his lodge.

It all happened so fast (therefore no photos) and yet it was a spectacular site none-the-less!

I called out to him as I left letting him know I was so glad to finally meet him, even if briefly!

Yay, Paddy!

Curious if a beaver lodge has emerged along the beaver canal as a 3ft tall stick and mud pile now sits above the water line.
