Gary is a wildlife enthusiast who wants to share more about marshlands, so he sets up a hidden camera by a log that has fallen across the water.
He mentions that beavers will chew and eat just about anything when they are hungry. They happened to chew through an aspen tree that luckily fell at the right angle on the water.
Now all manner of wildlife in the forest come by the fallen log to use it or visit the other sources of sustenance nearby. The camera captures footage of a beaver swimming beside the log.
Different types of birds walk on the wood and even use it as a perch. There was a time a raccoon stood on the log and used it to get across the water, and then he climbed down and grabbed a drink.
Even a wolf used it as a bridge at one point. During the winter, the log is covered with ice and snow. A deer found the hidden camera and sniffed it closely before leaving.
More deer were seen nearby as they scavenged for food. They could walk all the way around because the water was frozen. When the ice melted, the log was the perfect bridge for a forest feline and even a massive bear.
It is truly fascinating to see all the various wildlife visit such a simple fallen log. Even at night, nocturnal creatures can be seen playing and swimming by it.
