A sunny low wind day
I arrived late at Jenner today, around 1PM. The sun was out and the wind was down as I unloaded my boat and put it in the water.
Startled this hawk
Looking for critters
From there I crossed over the river to the north side here and paddled along the shoreline looking for critters. When I got to Paddy’s rock down there I crossed back to the south shoreline to the left.
I think that’s an otter
With the water muddy from the recent rains, I was curious to see where the otter would feed as most critters can’t see to feed in the water right now.
Following the otter
So, I stayed back and followed it down the river along the south edge and watched it to see where it would feed and what it would do.
It lost me a couple times, but I was patient and waited and I was able to spot it again.
It stopped to eat something here. Otter’s can’t eat under water like the seals can, so they have to bring all the catch to the surface to eat, so they are fairly easy to watch feed. They make a lot of noise crunching things too.
Ducks don’t like otters
Bye Bye otter
The otter got out for a rest here for a short time, then turned back up the river. I’d followed it about three quarters of a mile down the river. I left it and headed on down towards the river’s mouth area.
Headed to the mouth area
Mouth is open to the ocean
I went on home and that was my day.
