    I hope your house isn't near any of those trees. Are they working on more than one tree at a time?

    I think bevers can get nasty if they think they are protecting their home but I would think something like a duck wouldn't bother them. Someone may say different. I would worry more about other things that get ducks. I like bevers. I don't think you have to worry about them eatting the ducks, just protecting their home if they think its under attack. This is just a best guess. I really don't know a lot about them.
