Breakfast with the Otters

It is a frosty 30 degrees here in Tidewater, OR, this morning!  I am SO grateful for a warm and dry place to live.

These photos were taken near Blackberry Campground on the Alsea River, Oregon.

I wonder if otters, or any wildlife for that matter, ever shiver?

There were at least 5 river otters in this group.  Just a little bit of mist is coming off the river.

Don’t you just love outdoor breakfasts on the river!

Everybody’s happy

I’m assuming they are eating small salmon.  The color of the flesh is bright orange as you’ll be able to see in the video below.
