Woodrat houses

We discovered a whole village of woodrat houses on our hike today. I did some research after Kelton found some scat on an oak tree branch at the top of the trail last week. I concluded that it looked like woodrat scat. This week when we did the same hike we found 7 or 8 of these large woodrat houses with fresh signs. I don't know how we missed them last time! The little rodents were probably sleeping in their houses as they are nocturnal. Kelton wonders if they ate the Cherrios Brennan dumped out in the vicinity last time?
