Marine Mammals of Tomales Bay: The River Otter (A video)

I’ve been experimenting with a little voice over on my newest footage of River Otters. Please, let me know what you think and if any of you would like me to continue with the natural history narrative that I am supplying. Let me know what you think by commenting below or by emailing me directly, or by letting me know on Facebook.

Most of this video was taken on the same day as these photographs, although I included a little close up footage of an otter eating a fish on a different day.

Most of the natural history information supplied on the video was gleaned and gathered from Field Guide to Marine Mammals of the Pacific Coast by Sarah G. Allen, Joe Mortensen, and Sophie Webb, a well written guide that includes one of my photos.

Thank you

    beautiful, I love otters, must have been one at some time. what is the mechanical noise?

  2. Some of the mechanical noise is the lens of my camera. At times there are also sounds of boats, but generally it is the image stabilization feature, which allows me to hand hold the camera as I film. I thought I had resolved the issue by using an external microphone, however, the camera noise remains a problem. I have plans on how to resolve it, they just remain to be implemented sometime this week.
