What's happening when that stream carries some water? Does it run between the logs or is the path flooded with water running across it?

If you don't get your feet wet I would say the current tagging with tunnel=culverton the steam is ok. Tagging it as a bridge wouldn't be out the way either. It's one of those corner cases.

If the path gets flooded, though, I would neither tag bridge nor tunnel but a ford. To do that you have to connect highway and waterway with a common node and tag it with ford=yes.

Using logs or stones is a simple way of draining water without resorting to plastic or concrete (: it functions as a culvert until clogged with silt.
