I was up early today the birds started singing at 4:30 this morning and it was 
a wonderful way to wake up. I posted to the blog and decided to go to 
Herricks cove. Walked out of the house and saw a Beaver, sitting on a tree 
that the beavers downed last fall. It heard me and disappeared under the 
water in an instant, got some image when it came up for air and I will post 
later. On the way to Herrick's cove I stopped at the Rockingham Country 
stores ponds and was very gald I did. There was a call coming from the Cattail 
swamp that I could not ID.
