    I've been playing around at the river near my house destroying beaver dams and relocating beavers to help in flood control. We first saw these guys in the Spring and now see them almost every day we go out. We have found what we believe to be their nest and the DNR is going to verify it in February during their survey. If it is a nest it will be the first one in this county since 1890. These pictures were taken in Gary, IN about three blocks South of I-94. I was within 30 yards of them. Not something you'd expect to see in an urban area. There are also a couple of juveniles in the area.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

    One of the many birds we do "NOT" have here in the Islands...I guess it's to far for them to fly. Very nice. I remember visiting Alaska and seeing them all over....the nests are so large as well.

        Great Pics - They are fun to watch. One cold winter day, we found a bunch playing on the Mississippi River. They were hitching a ride on the ice chunk and floating down river. They would then fly back and find another ride.

                Can't get mine yet in Arizona, although I'd love to. Don't have enough vaccines here, so we are still focused on high exposure 'essential workers' and people over 75. I have a sister in assisted living with hospice people and care givers that come and go everyday...they still haven't received the...

                We have not. A visit to the doctor and he stated that once sick with covid, the antibodies are active in the body.

                Who has Been Vaccinated ?

                My wife and I got vaccinated this morning. I had worried that there would be long lines. But, the state of Indiana seems to have gotten it right. We went online 10 days ago and scheduled an appointment. We got there as nd no line and went thru the check in, got our shots, waited 15 minutes...
