  1. I think I just missed you and the RLHA on the 19th, but I did have a North American River Otter in the icy marsh at the end of the Pilger Trail at Laudholm Farm. Off and on over the last three years I have found a small bevy of them at Capisic Pond in Portland. Usually early in the morning, but once was in the late afternoon.
