Have you thanked a muskrat today?

Originally uploaded by Laura Erickson
We're quiet but busy, constantly working on new muskrat houses that you birds keep taking over. Loons, ducks, geese, and swans nest right on top of our houses, and never even thank us! And frogs and turtles climb up where sometimes you birds come in and eat them, with nary a kind word for us hard workers who attracted them in the first place. We make your lives easier and better, and ask nothing in return but a little bit of gratitude.
