My nature photographer friends have informed me that they believe that this is an adult beaver and a yearling, probably the mother and kit from last year. This makes sense because the little one behaved as a kit following its mother. They swam side by side from the lodge, then climbed the canal bank. We could hear the kit whimpering to its mother as it climbed onto the bank behind her. While the mother chewed the bark, it seemed as though the yearling was telling her that he was going to go down further and find another location to eat. The mother didn't respond, but just continued gnawing at the tree base.
