Takeaways:

  • Ecologists from the Oregon State University have captured several species of animals using logs to eat, preen and walk.
  • Over 2000 animals were captured on video, including bobcats, cougars, bears, coyotes, who crossed the logs, and otters, kingfishers, and eagles who used the space to rest and hunt.
  • “We think this is a hidden role of large wood; everybody that will need to cross will use them, so it creates a concentration of animals,” said Ivan Arismendi, a stream ecologist at the university.
