When my four legged companion and I go walking along the creek, I am always on the look out for the beavers who live in the creek. I am not sure how big the family is but based on sightings I am guessing it could be three.
These beavers are quite industrious and always working. I know they are destructive to the popular trees and willows growing by the banks of creek. I have had the chance to watch the beavers swimming by as I am walking on the footpath that follows the creek. When a beaver realizes I am close to them, it will loudly slap the water with its tail and slip underwater and swim a short distance before resurfacing. I have attached some photos from recent walks.
