STOPS ALONG THE WAY

NORTH AMERICAN BEAVER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Beaver - 2

We came across this beaver towards the end of our walk. Instead of taking our regular route back we decided to walk along the river’s edge. Given that it was mid day we weren’t expecting to see a beaver as they are mainly active at night. Looking down the river bank we saw it feeding at the shoreline. We were very close and it must have been aware of us but tolerated our presence. The beaver stopped eating for a bit, took a swim and returned with something else to snack on. You never know where a different path might lead!

  5. They are so darling. Nice captures! I’m glad you took that path! We used to have some beavers who built a dam in a pond near us when we were living in our old house. They actually were creating quite a bit of destruction of the small trees that surrounded the pond. That den was probably 6′ high! Fish and Game came and relocated them in a different area.
