I dug back into my archive of pictures and found a few shots that give a perspective of change over the years. These three shots speak for themselves. (Click on the pictures to enlarge.) You can see some of the winter food cache to the left of the lodge in the October 2014 picture. It's obvious that as they ate the bark and small branches, they used the large remains to built the lodge skyward.
While the repair should only take a few minutes, I have to make sure I get to the repair before the beavers discover they have access to the culvert. That mean daily treks to watch for sufficient melting to allow for a rather cold few minutes of repair. Hopefully my waders are sufficiently insulated.
I know there is a double entendre here about squirrels watching and nuts, but I'll refrain from committing it to writing. Let your imagination and your conscience be your guide.
