North American Beaver – Castor canadensis

During the night, a beaver bustles about in the woods and on the lake really close to my microphones. We hear him breath, growl, walk around and slap his tail on the water. Fascinating to witness his nocturnal activities so closely ! Further away, two Common Loons’ calls reverberate in the night.
