Otter tracks

otters at play

Friends, these tracks in the snow were made by some North American River otters that live in Crex. These members of the weasel family have made a comeback from the hunting and trapping decreases of the past.  Two women were bitten last summer by otters and they can be fierce adversaries.   Jim and I spent our weekend birding in Crex. The temperatures have warmed to above zero Fahrenheit so it was more comfortable to be outside.  The dog loved it, he had us all to himself.  til Tomorrow MJ
