Martinez Beavers (and friends) are still going strong!

Posted under local birds

I thought the beavers were doomed when the city of Martinez did some seemingly unnecessary wall-building right next to the beaver lodge; I figured the beavers would move someplace else…which sounds benign, but isn’t, because wherever they went would probably provide worse habitat: if they knew a better spot, they’d have gone there in the first place!  But I underestimated the beavers, which in fact have hung on in Martinez and have done just great.  And not only are the beaver enjoying the spot, they have apparently made the place attractive to other animals…including the cutest family of minks that you could ever hope to see. Check out the video and photos on the Martinez Beaver blog.
