I actually have a beaver chopping down a tree in my backyard! We have a creek that runs through our yard. It's a pretty big creek too, about twenty feet deep and wide. It all started last year when we had a huge flood. The creek is usually pretty low, most times you can see the bottom. Here is a picture from the start of last years flood. The tree Bucky is chopping down is on the right.
Here is a picture of the flood waters getting higher, and into my yard. I won't post anymore flood pics, but the water surrounded my house, thanks to all my sand bagging efforts, the water never got in my house!
Flash forward to this summer. Now we have all kinds of wildlife in our yard! because of the flood so many animals were displaced. Bambi lived in my yard most of the summer.
Remember the tree in the first picture, well, Bucky the Beaver is chopping it down. This is a huge cottonwood tree. See in between the two trees, I think that is where Bucky and his family live now. They are building a Damn.
Here is a closer look! Bucky only comes out a night, so I am not able to get a good picture of him. I will keep you posted on his progress!
