Heard something crashing around on the bank Saturday morning while fishing out of my kayak and saw these 4 otters 2 on the bank and two in the water. I've never seen them before or even knew they were around in the area (Allegheny River - North of Tidioute PA). The juveniles were in the water and kept swimming around the kayak trying to figure out what I was, while the grown ones stayed on shore, they were chirping back and forth to each other - sounded kinda like birds. I could see the small ones swimming under the kayak checking me out. I quit fishing because I sure didn't want one trying to catch my surface lure! I had seen a buck the night before and didn't have my camera with me, so I really got lucky to see these and have my camera with me the next morning (7/31/2011).
