Busy beavers at Horse Hill

After a walk through Horse Hill in Merrimack last December, I posted this photo of a snow-covered beaver lodge. Nothing dramatic.

Stiff breezes will probably take some snow off this lodge tonight.

Today, I smiled at the sight of the same lodge, this time in spring sunshine.

A few moments later, as I looked across the pond, I caught sight of a MUCH bigger lodge, which I do not recall seeing before.

I think the older lodge must now be the servants’ quarters. Amazing what these creatures can build.
