Name that otter

I donโ€™t know who coaxed him back, but the otter has returned to the mural on the side of the library. Maybe he was taking a swim in the nearby creek and realized if he didn’t return, he would miss his moment in the spotlight! Perhaps he just wants a name other than The Orinda Otter.

And the snake now has some greenery to crawl atop. He seems happier.

Here are some interesting facts about otters than might make you want to become an “otter spotter.”

On the other side of the mural, can you spot the snail, butterfly, caterpillar and spider?

I think this little guy is a towhee or a finch or maybe a warbler? He should have a name too, don’t you think?

It’s hard to believe that it’s May. For me, it’s a month that contains far too many birthdays! It’s also the month to firm up all those summer plans. I’ll probably have less and less time to blog but I will try to keep you updated on the progress of the mural. Happy May, everyone.

  1. I share it sentiments with how it is ouch t believe May is here!
    It was like the end of March and the year was just getting started and then suddenly May arrived and we are getting to half year gone by? Crazy

    And like the new mural
    And the little bird does need a name – any ideas ?

      1. I don’t know the bird either (and love the flying by connecting – birds and flight )
        And we have a momma robin siting on her eggs in our back tree and I marvel at how patient she is – sits so long !

      2. We don’t have many robins out here (that I’ve recognized!) but I do remember seeing them near my grandma’s in Massachusetts. Lovely birds! I hope you get to enjoy the baby birds!

      3. One has hatched !
        I all try and share a photo later this month
        And the reason I know they are robins is because they have to be one of the easiest birds to identify – ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Any chance you’ll be heading east this year, Jan? Someday soon, I’ll take a trip west, but don’t think it’ll be this summer ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hi Jan, my Jan and Feb are packed with birthdays so I know the feeling. Iโ€™m enjoying watching this mural change. Itโ€™s good to see the otter back.
