What is it?

A small creature is rustling around in the grass near a slough...

Oops, I scared it.  It jumped into the water.  A short while's back...poking around in the grass

I see an eye and a little nose...

Yessir, one of my favourite little critters - The Common Muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus)

I think it was looking for some fresh green shoots to munch on.  It has been a very long winter for these little guys, too.
