someone has a plan!

This time of year the winter ice on the rivers in New Brunswick is starting to break up. At the concrete bridge over the South Branch of the Rusagonis Stream, not far from where I live, there is a narrow band of melted ice.

However, someone has plans for that part of the river. Have a look at the next two photos and guess who the ‘planners’ are.

Beavers! Not ice scour since softer trees at the same level are not involved. Also, two of the trees have deep ‘v’s cut out on the bank side.

We will be watching to see the next stage and the results of this plan. A beaver dam on the Rusagonis. Oh my!
