Beavers ‘a Buildin’

Watch as two beavers repair their winter home in Calgary. Photographer was only feet away as beavers busily went about their business. Watch as they co-ordinate their work, one pushing branches into the “roof-top” on one side as the other works to push branches through from the other side, maximizing their efforts. See how a curious baby beaver scoots back inside the mound, from right under the feet of the photographer. A most unusual thing occurs when one of the beavers, with a heavy load of branches in it’s mouth, stands up and walks solely on it’s hind feet, carrying the load across the icy river surface. Truly remarkable close up views of these industrious animals as they work.
