The beaver prepares food for the winter. He tumbled down the tree and, as seen in the third image, divided it into several parts. By piles of chips - we see in what places he cut a lying tree. He dragged part of the branches into the water at the storage site. And he ate the bark from the remaining trunk.

I have very limited knowledge of beavers so it is amazing to see how industrious they are. Thanks for sharing.

Another great series. A diet of bark doesn't appeal to me but they certainly are industrious animals. I have a book called "Three against the wilderness" about a family who made the living by trapping in Canada in 1920-30. They reintroduced beavers to the area where they lived and recorded the changes as the beavers became established. It is a fascinating story.

Thank you, for information. It looks like this book was translated to russian 1971. Very interesting!

Your first and last photos show that the beavers have certainly picked a lovely place in which to live in.
