A Beaver Dam: Fall to Winter

Here it is, the sequel to “A Beaver Dam: Summer to Fall.” It features more footage from a trail camera on a beaver dam at Kabetogama Peninsula in Voyageurs National Park.

The purpose of the camera was to confirm the area was a border for the territories of two wolf packs — the Nashata Pack and the Shoepack Lake Pack. The Nashata Pack is seen most frequently in this video. The pack has a distinctive breeding female who is seen bedding down in front of the camera toward the end of the video. She can also be seen “slipping” on the ice in another clip.

The Voyageurs Wolf Project, focused on understanding the summer ecology of wolves in the park, notes that there was a “very cold stretch last fall for several weeks in October during which all the ponds and lake edges froze,” so “some of the ‘wintry’ scenes in the video are actually from October and November.”

Kabetogama Peninsula is about 115 miles northwest of Duluth.
