We have surprised the most variety of critters while floating down the river. Otters, a variety of ducks, deer bedded down on the bank, laid out flat on the ground “hiding” in plain sight, lots of raccoons. My favorite was a screech owl, also seldom seen but heard quite often. There was a gum tree growing out over the river that had broken off in the past and a sprout had grown off the end and the old break had become hollow. The sleepy eyed owl was perched in the hollow in the early morning light after a night of owl carousing. I drifted by slowly watching him until he spotted me and rolled quickly back into the hollow.
