Ellis Bird Farm Blog
We are pleased to announce that a pair of beavers have appeared at EBF. We are not sure when they arrived, but when we first noticed them on Monday morning, June 15, the lower pond dam breach (from heavy spring flooding) had already been repaired. We suspect that they arrived on the site sometime before the heavy rains on June 13th.
The pair seem to be checking out the old lodges and runs, and have been seen hauling away the poplar branches that we've offered them from the historic feeding station. They are quite tame, so EBF staff have had some great beaver viewing opportunities.
Most EBF friends and followers will recall that EBF had beavers on the site from the fall of 2010 to the fall of 2015, when they mysteriously disappeared. We are thrilled to have them back and we have our fingers crossed that they will decide to call EBF home!
