Yesterday, Mr.C. and I returned to Lake Arrowhead to check out the nature trails there. I mentioned them in this post.
Naturally we chose the Beaver Trail which took us around the entire lake. It was a ‘brisk’ sunny day so we walked rather quickly. The scenery is beautiful!
We observed Canadian Geese, Coots, and 3 Bufflehead ducks… unfortunately we didn’t see any beavers though!
We took some back roads on the way home and stopped by a pond where my friend Stacey had seen a beaver earlier in the year. We didn’t see any beavers, but we did see a pair of otters!
Some research online informed me that otters are mating at this time of year and that they often use old beaver or muskrat lodges. I’m guessing this means that the beaver has moved on and there may be some baby otters to observe come springtime! How fun!!!
