A little hike today
I took a closer photo so you could admire their handiwork. They chewed down this tree and ate the bark.
A closer view of the end of the log. See how much they chew?
The beaver have been around here for a long time. This is the decades-old remains of a tree they felled last time they were up at this end of the stream.
When we moved here seven years ago, there were no beaver in the stream at this end at all. They were all upstream. They moved down a few years ago and now even closer. I enjoy having them around, although I must admit it takes some time to get used to hearing the CRASH and SPLASH of trees falling in the night!
