Little Mother Otter

A big disturbance in the water made me watch closely for what would show on the surface of the Alsea River today.

They were so active in the water, and keeping together for the most part, that it was hard to tell how many there were.

Fortunately, I was able to see them on the river bank.  Now I just have to hope they spread out so I can count them.

SIX!   I count 5 kits and one adult (the mom).
