Name that otter

I don’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.
