You take a couple of days off to go camping and when you come back the water in the north channel has dropped. Of course that can only mean one thing. Beavers.
The little darlings have built a dam just east of the bridge that goes onto Watson Island. It is pretty cool and in the perfect spot too. The pond that is forming is right where my irrigation intake is for the amphitheater. They haven't dammed anything else just yet although it looks like they are in construction mode. I came across a felled Russian olive and Siberian elm. Looks like our little bucktooth buddies are doing their part for conservation.
