The Kid Should See This

How many animals use this log to cross the stream?

A log makes for a natural bridge over a small burbling stream, but it might not seem like a bustling forest location until you focus a camera on it for a year or two. This peaceful log bridge video, filmed in the Pennsylvania wilderness by Robert Bush, captures just how many wild animals cross over and under this log, day and night in every season.

Bears, beavers, bobcats, deer, squirrels, coyotes, grouse, herons, turkeys, owls, kingfishers, and many more make appearances. How many species can you count?

The August 2019 video, filmed in 2018-19, was the second of Bush’s log videos. His first, The Log Movie, was filmed in 2017-18 and includes curious baby bears, a snowy winter scene or two, and a few small surprises.
