|why i otter....|
|this morning was cold|
|the snow/ice mid month |
held tracks for days

going up the outflow (so to speak)
from folly to otter pond
|only way to travel|
|slippery, cracking ohpi|
|as far as otter scat keeping form,|
this scat is literally "the shit"
|why grebes eat their feathers|
|this is from a few days later and from a different place|
|across the pond and belly slide|
(1/22) (three days later) – ohpi status - solid, snow covered. 2 otters were active on the pond over the previous night. They crisscrossed the pond in three spots, going “off-ice” at the certain points to mark? No scats were found away from the main latrine found on the 1/19.
One of the pair liked to belly slide, the other didn't slide - not even a once. They both dragged their tails. They stuck to the the shoreline except where they crossed the pond three times and the handful of times they went ashore to mark.
|hugging the shore, and a fat ol' belly slide|
|cool to see the claw drag on the sides of the belly slide|
|belly slide goes first|
