  • Locations of lodges of muskrats near Transect 1 on the northern end of Hog Island in May 2005 and repeated in May 2007, April 2009, May 2011, April 2013 and March 2015. In April 2009 no active muskrat lodges were observed from Transect 1. The remains of two lodges were observed, but they were less than 20 cm in height, had vegetation growing out of them, and showed no sign of activity, so they were not surveyed. Similarly in April 2011 a survey yielded no lodges. So for 2009 and 2011 GIS files were not created, because they would not have contained any points. In 2013 and 2015 one and three lodges were observed, respectively. Comments in the attribute tables in the layers contains information on the diameter and height(in decimeters or meters) of lodges.
