Otters Boiling the Alsea River

The river otters are fun to watch. There is such a flurry of activity in the water even before you know what’s making all the ripples.  I like them to come up on land so I can keep track of them while I count noses.

They almost never sit still for a photo.

Voracious Wildlife

I don’t mind sharing our fruit trees and berry bushes with the wildlife. I just wish they weren’t so voracious!    I thought it was birds until I saw the Marionberry leftovers on the rock.  So I camped out and caught the little thief red-handed AND red-lipped.

They pick the berries before they are all the way ripe!  Even if we had a greenhouse I bet they’d find their way in.  We hadn’t had any problems with them eating our blueberries until this year.

These chipmunks are a little less cute with berry juice on their lips!
