I saw two otter along the river’s edge, one with a fish it had just caught.
Then out of the corner of my eye I saw an immature Bold Eagle. It swooped down out of the sky, right for the Otters.
The Otters scrambled back into the water, just in time
The Eagle recovered altitude, was joined by a second and they headed down river.
It amazes me how a bird that size can swoop down and lift off with what seems no effort.
( I apologize for the white and black pics... the time of the morning these are taken, the sun is not my friend... but when everything is going on.. )
. This morning a mink ran along the shore on it’s morning hunt.
Interesting everything gets out of the way of the Otter as it swims by.
This afternoon the Swans looked so serene resting in the sun
This morning the Swans were down on the river grooming themselves in the sun, when all of a sudden a Goose dive bombed them. Geese are big birds but not in comparison to a Swan…and for what purpose??
Before I could get my camera up to capture the action the dive bomber had moved on to a pair of Geese further down river. There was a tussle in which the gander fiercely defended his lady, chasing the intruder away.
With the intruder gone, calm returned to the river.
