Whose footprints are these? One of these guys below!
I live on a small lake in the suburbs of Seattle. I see lots of water birds, the occasional bald eagle, but this is first time I’ve seen river otters. There’s a total of four — one’s underwater in this picture. I think the recent snow and ice prompted them to go adventuring and they ended up here. It’s great fun to see them, but I hope they find their way back to a wilder place.
