Cold, blustery night, and a change of season. The aged beaver Willow (right) and her young beau enjoy a Thanksgiving Week feast.

I have had a hard time photographing the new kit. I always get to the pond after dark, and Charlie is a skittish little thing (which is good), so he doesn't come ashore near me, and always dunks back into the lodge as soon as he grabs an apple. On my last two visits though, he has floated just at the shoreline when I arrived, and clearly anticipated apples as I unpacked. Tonight he finally came ashore to grab an apple. Very cute. You can read his whole story here.

I joined Skip Lisle today to protect the overflow pipe on Patricia Greenwood's backyard pond. Skip did some amazing problem solving, installing a flow device in deep water so that Splash the beaver can remain in his new home and finish preparing for winter.
