The whole slideshow is here.

Muskrat? but its looks larger.

Enjoy your nature show. The leaves aren’t out yet here.

We’ve been getting nighttime temps in the teens yet here.

I expect to see some snow yet, maybe even in the first part of May!

They are somewhat similar, Larry. Nutria get a little bigger when full grown (3-4 ft. from nose to tail-tip), and live primarily in or near waterways. They are more comfortable swimming than they are on land.

Charlie: The black swan looks so lonely, do you think it’s lady friend was setting on eggs.

I think I going to go to the local Muskrat feast next fall. A couple of the churches down by the Chesapeake Bay put them on.

Lee, the meat is quite edible. A few years ago there was a big push to popularize eating them, because they reproduce quickly and are quite a nuisance in this part of the country. They never really caught on in the mainstream restaurants, though, because people think of them as big rats. Not very appetizing. :-)

I was in the Seattle area in 1960 and the nutria had gotten away from someone that was going to raise
them for money and really became a problem, but with the price on beef going high, they could become
an alternate source of meat real easy. Great looking slide show.
