Love a Muskrat
In early spring or late winter, on the first warmer days of the year, you might be able to spot a whole family basking in the warming rays of the sun on top of their lodges.
And contrary to the song Muskrat Love, if you come across a pair in the swamp on some summer evening, you are more likely to witness a fight. They will mutter to each other. They will box with their tiny paws. And the sorry loser will move off in the opposite direction muttering and chirping all the way.
