Seen in the Sanctuary:

Our muskrats are still very active on the West Lake. Today I noticed a lot of busyness over towards the viewing deck, so I made sure to watch where the harvested cattails were being taken to. Funnily enough, they were being taken right under the deck itself.

Since the water level is still fairly high, at least one family of muskrats has decided to den in the bank under the deck. You can see the den if you stand on the open deck and look back toward the trail-end.

The second photo isn't a great shot, but it was snapped near the den. This guy was taking advantage of a fairly quiet day in the Sanctuary to have a snack right beside the deck.
