Beavers’ lodge in bank


Everyone is familiar with beavers damming creeks so as to get an adequate water depth around their lodges. However if the water is already deep (or fast flowing), beavers will build their lodges by burrowing into the bank. Any pile of branches against the bank of a stream or a lake might signal the location of a beaver lodge.

This pile of branches marks the location of where beavers have burrowed into the bank.

A beaver sits adjacent to its lodge and nibbles on a branch.

With morning’s light, it swims off in search of more foliage.

    A truly remarkable reflection image you’ve caught of the swimming beaver…you’d better enter it in a photo contest!
