March 28, 2020: River Otters

I had walked down to the ridge along the east side of Pool F to count the number of Ring-necked Ducks.  I approached the north and immediately spotted two heads poking out of the water.  The first Northern River Otters of the year!  I hurried back to the trike to get my camera and returned.  By then the otters were on the ridge, but quickly slipped back into the water when I approached.  They swan near me and then suddenly dove.  I watched and waited for more than 5 minutes, but I never saw the otters again.  I returned during the second lap, but they still weren't observed.
