When the wind start* to blow and the days grow cold many animals start looking for a cozy place to spend the winter. Some, like the birds, move long distances' away. They fly south to a warmer climate. But many of the animals just move to a warmer house when winter comes.

This is the coypu, a rat-like fur animal. The males grow to b« about the :ize of a dachshund. Until a little over 20 years ago, it was thought that they must be. imported from South America. Then a male coypu gnawed its way .to freedom rom a pen on Avery Island, Louisiana, one dark night and campered to,freedom in the ush marshes. It was joined by 11 companions from the same pen. They -were all expected to be killed in a few days by alligators in the swamp. Yet 15 years later Louisiana r a p.p e r s took coypu pelts /alued at several hundred housand dollars to market. The coypu's fur is called nutria. Often referred to as a 'swamp beaver," the coypu is actually a rat, the larrest of Iti kind. At first rirht It does look ike a slanted beaver with a meny coat.

Its short legs are hardly able o keep its body off the ground, o it spends most of it« time n the water, even though it is trictly a vegetarian and does iot eat fish. It loves icy water, nd is often observed running ver the ice in search of an Goypu gtts handout from Laura Miller, 14; in Syracuse, N.Y. opening to plunge in and swim about.

The hole has to be large enough for the squirrel to enter and big enough to store a winter's supply of nuts. It must b» deep enough to keep out the snow and cold. Each hole ii looked into until the house hunting squirrel finds one that suits him. Then he starts to fill it with nuts and other good things to eat. Some animals look for their winter horae in a lake or pond. Frogs • and salamanders swim deep down to the very bottom and curl up in the mud. Snails and some kinds of fish do the same thing-. The lively water strider and the whirligig beetle often follow them and lay dormant in their muddy apartment all winter. Cave hoiwe* are always well Mled by the flr»t snowfall.

A large number of insects go underground to look: for a place to spend the winter. They burrow deep down and stay there all winter. Some kinds of in- secte die in the fall, leaving their eggs to hatch the following year. Others like some moths see a "for rent" sign on any fluffy cattail head and spend the winter inside snug and warm. A few like the wasps fly into a hole or .under a low overhanging roof and stay there until it warms up next spring. The field noun builds several underground runways.
