I heard the beavers being

I took an hour to visit with the occupants of the beaver lodge. I laid down on the snow with my ear to the hole on top and after being quiet for a long time, the beavers started to move around. I could hear them gnawing on branches, shuffling around, grunting and squeaking. It sounded like a family with some babies just hanging out on a winter day. It's not too often that one can spend some time just a couple of feet from a family of wild animals going about their ordinary business in the wild.
