Otter

One thing’s for sure: you never know what you’ll see when floating the Red Cedar River. Oftentimes, a variety of wildlife—deer, black bears, beavers, eagles and more—provides numerous viewing opportunities for rivergoers on fishing expeditions and tubing adventures. Although fishing was subpar on a recent fishing trip, the wildlife was abundant. The river otter, pictured above, snorted to alert other otters of a potential predator. Little did it know we were content flowing by slowly in the current and snapping a few photos. Pictured below is a female merganser that splashed and skipped across the water for nearly 30 seconds to distract us and lure our vessel away from its young.
