I've noticed recently, more ground hogs, coyetes, eagles, hawks, and turkey buzzards really getting more in my area. Sometimes they surprise me and my cat(hehehe!) plus, if I'm lucky return later, good or bad.
As for beaver haven't seen one ever in our area, but I have seen muskrats big time and some trappers get them within the city limits. Of course, farm land is very close in our neck of the woods or city landscape.
but he'll probably remark on how large the rats are getting..
Beaver is spotted in New York City for the first time in 2 centuries
NEW YORK (AP) - Beavers grace New York City's official seal. But the industrious rodents haven't been spotted there for perhaps 200 years - until this week.
Biologists videotaped a beaver swimming up the Bronx River on Wednesday. Its twig-and-mud lodge had been spotted earlier on the river bank, but the tape confirmed the presence of the animal.
"It had to happen because beaver populations are expanding, and their habitats are shrinking," said Dietland Muller-Schwarze, a beaver expert at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. "We're probably going to see more of them."
