This morning, I saw a creature swim from the Big Island to the towpath side of the canal, right across my back yard view.
We do have a couple of Muskrats who swim in this part of the canal, but the guy I saw today wasn’t a Muskrat, as he was over two feet long, brown and swimming faster.
I think it would be great that otters are taking up residence here, it shows that the area is ecologically sound!
Keep your eyes out folks and if you spot this little guy, please let us know here.
Here’s a link regarding reintroduction of otter in The Finger Lakes. Could they have traveled this far?
