Walk Along the Speed River
Itty Bitty and I went for a walk along the river tonight. It was drizzling a bit, but not enough to keep us from a stroll down to feed the geese. Both of us were stunned to see a couple of these little guys swimming along the bank of the river. At first, Itty Bitty though they were some kind of otter, but then we saw that big flat tail come up out of the water, and we knew we were looking at a pair of beavers!
Most of the baby geese are now awkward adolescents (and ugly!) But they were the mostly likely to eat right out of my hand - absolutely fearless.
