Muskrats

Shortly before dusk, a muskrat came swimming across the lake toward the boardwalk at the refuge.  As it swam about in the shallow water, foraging on aquatic plants, it joined in a chorus of high-pitched squeals with a couple of other muskrats that were swimming nearby.

  1. They sure are animated and I was happy to see at the very end, that he/she took a longer swim. They kept going a short distance, then stopping. We have them in our Creek at the Park, but mostly I see the tail only and that is because they are going fast in the water.
