The otter was fighting this huge fish underwater for several minutes. Eventually it dragged the still-thrashing fish onto a small island and disappeared behind some vegetation.

Observer

Description

Rubus praecox seems to be the primary blackberry of upland habitats in HBRA, while R. armeniacus occurs in deeper soils such as on the river bottom. R. praecox is distinguished (subtly) by curved prickles on the inflorescence axis (vs mostly straight in R. armeniacus) and prickles on first year canes being the same color as the adjacent stem (in this case purple). R. armeniacus will typically have prickles on primocanes with a reddish base, contrasting with the green stem. At this time of the year, fruiting phenology is useful; R. armeniacus is well past the peak of fruit ripeness by 3 weeks or so, while R. praecox fruits are just starting to ripen.

GEOPRIVACY NOTE:
All my observations are posted with “obscured” geoprivacy. This means the exact location for each observation is masked somewhat within the red box that shows up on the standard browser viewer. I’m happy to provide more habitat description if requested — as the map may not be too precise in the public view.

A REQUEST:
When recommending an identification, please adhere to current standards of taxonomy as deployed by iNaturalist at this time — as opposed to identifying and classifying organisms based on personal beliefs about what taxonomy can, should, or of right ought to be in opposition to iNaturalist’s current taxonomy. Comments noting such taxonomic disagreements, however, are welcomed and encouraged. I prefer my observations to be inline with current taxonomic standards as deployed by iNaturalist (as opposed to my personal beliefs) so that this and other observations are readily accessible to iNaturalist users with greater efficiency and usability. This has been an issue in the past with some folks in the herpetological circles. Thanks!

If you have any questions regarding this observation, feel free to contact me or leave a comment below!

Experts - What is going on here? This male American Kestrel sure did seem to have the hots for this female Merlin. He kept trying to get close to her and even brought her a few treats (insects?) from the grass beneath the fence. She accepted the treats but didn't seem thrilled with the attention. However, when he flew off, she followed him...
