New Backyardigans Come To Play

The opening of my kitchen blind this morning, revealed a couple of newcomers to our backyard.

Odette and her cute baby Ollie were frolicking in the pond. If they were looking for fish, they were disappointed.

They stayed to play for a few minutes before running back to the lake where fish are plentiful. River otters have few predators, but are sometimes hunted by alligators and birds of prey, so I guess these two had better watch out for Ali-Baba and Ozzie osprey. They’re pretty fast in the water, so their chances of survival are quite good.

I’m always happy to see new critters on my patch. Do you have any interesting animals in your backyard?

Happy Tuesday everyone.
